It is quite a challenge to make a point of wearing at least 1 garment I have made each day. It shows me the gaps in my made by me wardrobe. I am sadly lacking in casual clothes for hangin at home ,I haven’t really made any so I will have to fix that.
I also needed to blog about an indie pattern I had made this week so the winner is;
I have had this pattern for a little while it was a free download when I got it. If you like it this is the website .
The fabric I chose is this grey reptile print sheer stretch. When cutting this fabric I realised that I would need to make a double layer front a back to get the effect and also for it to not be completely see-through. It was challenging to sew, sheer stretch moves a lot !!! I did lay tissue paper under it as I sewed as it stuck to the feed dogs a lot. I was in a bit of a hurry on this one so I don’t have construction pics. I will say though I really like this pattern and will make it again if my fabric hadn’t been so sheer I could have added pockets and I cut them out but realised pretty quickly that would be a bust. Damn I love pockets in my clothes, Oh well can’t win them all.
I have worn this top heaps and it features in the gallery above, I wore it on day 2 under a jacket I have yet to blog about . I will give the details soon but I am making a few so I want to do them all at once.
This is a really great pattern, it fits well I do like a nice wide neckline and I am particularly partial to 3/4 sleeves so for me it is ideal. It flows really well and there are lots of variations within the pattern so something for everyone.
Hope if you try it you like it as well.
Happy Sewing ,
