Thinking of spring......(as this winter drags on and on and on. It was -24 again today and we have warnings of -45 tomorrow), I decided to get a jump start on K's wardrobe. I popped out 2 tee shirts for her with Ottobre 03/2011 #19. I have sewn this one other time. I like having a good tee pattern because the kids live in them. I used two wild knits from that box of fabric I picked up in Jan for $1.18 per yard. So each tee cost $1.18. WIN!
dizzying isn't it?
a close up
The wild one with the pink sleeves I used size 134 shoulders and length with a 142 width. The fabric is really stretchy so it works but is a bit snug. For the floral tee I used a straight 146. It is big in the shoulders so I think I can go down to a 142 in shoulders and 146 in width - this fabric was less stretchy.
Neither of these are stash fabrics (except the pink sleeves and neck bindings) but they are cute! I was working on a blue linen Oliver +S hopscotch skirt (to go with the tees) but realized I won't finish it by the end of the month so I wanted to get these pictures. The skirt will have to be another day. I picked up the hopscotch and knit tee pattern as well as the music class blouse and skirt pattern (both from Oliver+S).
I happily ordered some fabric - What!? I got rid of 18.5 yards so I figured it was ok :)
I picked up 3 yards of the most beautiful Wee Wander - I am so in love with this print! I got the top two and then the middle one, but in pink
A yard of Charley Harper knit that I've been coveting for a bit now
And a yard of this awesome mustache fabric that is the softest knit I've ever felt.
Things are going well in our neck of the woods and I'm enjoying this peaceful time - I know it won't last!
I really need to get sewing some things off my upcoming list though... and the April Burda looks AMAZING! I'll be busy - but I'd rather have too much to sew than not know what to sew at all. :-)
Stash sewn this year: 12.5
Fabric out 2014: 53.5
Fabric in 2014: 55
