Sewing On the Wrong Side: My Reverse-Print Tractor Shirt!

Readers, did you know this was even a thing?

Apparently Aloha shirts -- also known as Hawaiian shirts -- are often made with the printed side (what we sewers call the right side) on the inside.  More muted in appearance, they are often worn for business wear.  (You can read more about reverse-print Aloha shirts here).

Wouldn't You Have Bought This Fabric Too?

Readers, I was fabric shopping earlier in the week with an old friend -- more about her in a bit -- when I saw this sign at Fabrics For Less on 39th St. (now combined with Chic Fabrics).  Behind it was a cute vintage tractor-print -- quilting cotton really -- for just $1.99 a yard.  It took a few days for me to make up my mind, but I was back there this morning and grabbed, alas, the last four yards.
