Show Clothes

When I travel for work, packing is relatively simple because we wear the same thing for every show. Thursdays are always t-shirt days to help sell one of the t-shirts from the event's store.

This year the t-shirt we are wearing has what I consider short sleeves - probably because my upper arms not as young as they used to be. What to do. The ladies I work with opted to wear another shirt underneath it, but I'm on the move most of the day and two layers of clothing would soon have me sweating buckets, especially in the warmer locations. That's when my brilliant idea came to me - add sleeves to my shirt. Perfect! I have a white t-shirt with 3/4 length sleeves that the neck is really weird on so I don't wear it anymore and is the perfect donation subject.

I put the plan in place the morning I was flying out. I carefully cut the sleeves from the white t-shirt, pinned them to the short-sleeved t-shirt, and sew them in place. It worked beautifully and I was thrilled.

Today I put on the newly altered t-shirt and I'm loving that the sleeves are longer. I'm finishing my hair and when I raised my right arm noticed that I had sewn the white sleeve into the t-shirt inside out so the seam was showing. The left sleeve was correct (seam inside). Lovely! Too late to fix it since there's no sewing machine and no chance I'm taking it out and enduring the short sleeves.

And so I sported a new fashion today - one sleeve seam out, one sleeve seam in. I can't wait for tomorrow to see how well this new style is adopted (and yes, I'm joking). What would life be if we can't poke fun at ourselves. At least I didn't overheat today or have to show off my less than flattering upper arms.
