|I had a nice piece of leftover fabric from my latest Kwik Sew 3059 Polo shirt. Plenty for one of my Talbot's t-shirt copies so I could make a workout t-shirt.
But, I was tired when cutting out the pattern and grabbed the lower cut version and didn't realize the error until trying it on.
Oops! A little TOO low cut for the crowd I was hanging with - a local hospital's Cardiac Rehabilitation facility (I take a friend who had a stroke 3 times a week, and I can use the treadmills if they are available).
The fabric matched a pair of steel blue workout pants perfectly and I didn't want to wear it and hear, "grab the defibrillator!"
Fortunately I had a scrap with more of the lacy fabric print area for a pretty contrast, and cut a piece lengthwise grain to go across and fill in the lower neckline/upper bust area. I topstitched it to the finished edge of the neckline and voila! Modesty and health prevails!
Something to keep in mind, in case this ever happens to you.
I may even make this "mistake" again and use a contrasting fabric for a layered look without the actual layers.
A good save!
