what to make with your husband's old shirt!
A mushroom shortall: the perfect use for the husband's old dress shirt. The fabric is luxurious-- with a high thread count--and it's even non-iron! This also made for a relaxing summer porch activity. In and out with the needle (sewing by hand makes me feel really vintage), interspersed with, "Adam quit spraying me with that darn hose!" and, "no, you may not go pee pee on the grass" (to the potty-obsessed two-year old), "no the gallon of milk does not come out on the porch" (to the four-year old), "Ahh, stop it with that hose!" (to the son) and "put your clothes back on!" (again to the two year old). Whew, sewing by hand is hard work!
