Hello everyone, yesterday I was not able to post something here, I have a cold that yesterday took over me. I still feel sick but I can survive, although I can’t survive without sewing just a tiny bit and KCW is the right excuse.
So, like I said on the previous post, I’m going through a KNIT phase and today is another day of KNIT sewing. I made this top with a hood for Gaby and I decided after to put long sleeves like this one. While I sleep sometimes I have “sewing visions” and I even figure out patterns that I don’t know how to assemble sometimes, well the same thing happened with this piece. I made the same top only with a skirt.
The second one, I have to be honest, I made it on Monday afternoon but was not able to finish it so I finished it yesterday at night. Its a nice pink linen that I found at Discount Fabrics and after washing it had a lighter weight. The pattern is from this Japanese Book and I have been meaning to make it for ages now, but that placket was so intimidating that I would skip the project because of it. I was able to make it and it turned out so pretty, now I want to make another one!
This dress was so easy to make, but I was so tired maybe and I assemble the skirt to the waistband in the wrong way, so I thought of leaving it like that but it look funny. So I had to undo it and cut a new waste band since the first one was completely ruined. Here’s Gaby looking good but not too happy. She has discovered some kind a show on PBS kids “FETCH the dog”? and she’s was in the middle of that when I asked her to come out. Not happy about it, and a neighbor passed by and made her smile that’s this photo.
I love this one, and it’s so comfortable and besides the placket that took like half an hour to get it right, the rest was a breeze! Good thing about sewing for Gaby is that she still likes my clothes and the choices I make, she has never rejected something…we will see how long this will last.
That’s it for my 3rd day of challenge. I already have cut something for tomorrow, I hope you like is got elephants!!!
