It seems I cannot go 6 months without making another Granville shirt. So I present to you my 5th rendition. Made in a medium weight cotton fabric. I liked the green and fuschia floral print.
There is nothing new to add about this shirt except that I experimented with using snaps. I believed that it would be faster and easier than buttons and buttonholes – how wrong I was -_-.
I love it and will be cutting out a plain chambray one for my next rendition. I will be doing a lot of cutting out of projects in an attempt to calm my mind that it still reeling from THAT thing. I never quite full appreciated how uncertainty can cause mental and emotional anguish. Still I am reminding myself that there are a lot of people dealing with much worse uncertainty – some live with not knowing whether they will be alive tomorrow because of wars, famine, disease etc. Perspective. I WILL push on doing what I do and I WILL NOT sink back into depression because of the helplessness and hopelessness I feel.
