Getting Through the Backlog

Still trying to get through that stack of projects… Back in, uh, June? I bought some fabric from My Daily Threadz. The fabric is sold in fixed lengths. I got some red rayon with a big flower print for me. The girls begged me for this pastel-ish large scale tropical print polyester crepe. So I got it.

E wanted some more Jalie Simone pants as she’d grown out of the previous ones. That was the first thing I made.


V requested a Jalie Bianca top. We cut the front on the fold so we wouldn’t mess with the print.


I had quite a bit of fabric left and E asked for the Jalie Flutter Sleeve top. I think I made the tunic since she’s slim. Easy way to get a long top length. I skipped the pockets though because I had to make some Simone pants for V as well. Sorry, I don’t remember the sizes and I’m too lazy to go check…


And that actually took up all the fabric! I only have scraps left. I’m really happy to have gotten so much out of that cut. I think it was 4 yards? As you can see, the first two items were made in time for our trip to Montauk where I got pretty good pictures.


We were supposed to go back to the beach at some point and I was going to get pictures of the two other items there but it never happened. And I was waiting for those pictures to share all 4 together. So yesterday, I forced the girls to give me a few pictures on the rooftop. V didn’t want to put in more than minimal effort. So she’s rocking her grungy hair and turquoise socks… Whatever. Funny thing is E is usually the one to wear the pants and top together in faux romper style.
