Anyway, onward. My bruised and battered arm is all healed up from falling on the stairs a few weeks ago. My sinus infection/cold is also gone (yay!) so I have been pushing forward with the sewing.
I picked up another fitting book and have high hopes for my alma (will sew this up next week). I am confident it will be awesome. Oh, and school started again, boo.
I wanted to get some fabric moving out of my stash so I grabbed this thin cotton knit with tropical birds on it to make K some pjs. You can't go wrong with pjs. I had 2 yards, the fabric has minimal stretch, and very soft.
Top is Jalie 2805 in size O for the width and M for the height. Bottoms are Ottobre 06/2013 #38 in a 134.
The top fit nice, a tad snug. The bottoms were really snug - I should have gone up a bit in size to account for the lack of stretch. Live and learn. 2 yards out of the stash! Yay.
(omg is she getting my swayback already? lol)
the pants didn't survive the day - due to the tightness
Oh and I finally got a pic of K wearing the previous Ottobre 06/2013 #38 with a tons of stretch. They fit nice and will be great leggings. She thought wearing them around the house all day was fun.
I also removed/sewed up 1 yard of the only flannel in the stash.
Fun drama with this. It started as 1 yard and I wanted to try the Jalie 3243 pants pattern. Size O. Well, the fabric wasn't long enough so I thought "ok, I'll make capri's with elastic in the legs, cute." I cut out the pattern and went to start sewing and found this huge hole in the fabric! UGH.
So I proceeded to hack more off and make them shorts.
And when ironing, found ANOTHER dang hole!
Terrible fabric. I patched this small one quick and called it good.
I'm also working on this top with 1.5 yards of knit from the stash
and then moving back to the alma. Total I will have used up 6.5 yards of stash so far this month.
What are you currently working on?
