Today I Wore Pink.



I’m going to wear it again tomorrow. But in order to wear it I decided, at about 9:00 last night, that the shirt should fit properly. So I made about my 4th t-shirt makeover. I didn’t have time to take pictures of this makeover. At about 11:00 DD crawls about of bed to complain that my machine woke her up - it’s right above her bedroom - “Just two more seams and I’m done. Go back to bed :)” I used Simplicity 4023. First, I carefully cut off the sleeves of the original T exactly at the seam (the original was a size L, so there wasn't much extra for mistakes). Then, I re-cut the side seams to follow the pattern. Lastly, I took off the neck ribbing, re-cut the neckline and sewed everything together. It may not look all that spectacular, but it definitely feels better than the generic size L.

I’m usually pretty quiet about my pink status, but this is year number five and tomorrow my kids, who were 2 and 3 when I was diagnosed, are taking the walk with me.

And I’m proud.

Dana, good for you! I was just diagnosed two weeks ago. Hopefully it's very early stage. They found it on my annual mammogram, and it appears to be very small. Congratulations on your milestone, a few months late!
