Just gotta go off posting schedule this week!
Monday was day 1 of KCW and I made leggings for both souricettes.
The fabric is cotton jersey and the pattern is from the Sewing Modkid Style book. I sized up and made them longer and they ended up a little bit baggy. I’ll be trying the pattern again but I’ll use something with some lycra/spandex content. They’re comfortable at least. Souricette 1 says they feel like pajamas. Hmmmm, matching T-shirts to turn them into actual pajamas?
Day 2, Tuesday, was actually more productive. I was anxious to get one nightgown done. Here.
I used a cute green on green polka dot cotton interlock and narrow stretch lace. She loves it! Tip: once the stretch lace is applied, do not press on that side of the fabric with a hot iron. Guess how I figured that one out…
And then, I really wanted to work on the Jalie tunic. I thought it would take me forever because it has a bunch of pieces but it went together like a dream. And I love it so much!
Seriously, I think it will be my favorite project of the week. It all just worked together wonderfully. Great pattern! And souricette 1 loves it too. She’s only pouting because she wanted to wear it as a dress and it’S too short for that. I may have to make her a second one in a dress length… Oh, fabric: the white is cotton interlock and the print is cotton jersey. The interlock has more body which makes it great for the collar, cuffs and belt.
And now, if you’ll excuse me, I have some more sewing to do. Still one or two more items to be made with white thread before I switch the serger to brown or black…
