I've been fitting in bits of sewing, but my output hasn't included anything terribly awesome. Just bibs and bobs that I'll start to blog together to save time.
First a simple new frock for Adele. Clearly it's a little too long.
Jalie Racerback Tank pattern (purchased from Sew Squirrel) and added a ruffle along the bottom at the request of Adele. I also used fold over elastic for the first time and I quite like the result, especially on this 100% cotton knit which doesn't have amazing recovery.
Next shorts for the boys.
I made more easy jersey shorts for the boys. The love how comfy these are, so much that they wear them all the time and I have to beg them to put on 'nice' shorts to go out.
Lastly, a tank for me.
Jalie racer tank pattern and I am quite pleased with the end result. It fits really well around the bust and back, but has just the right amount of drape around the waist and hip. As I'm not a fan of exposed bra straps, I un racered the back and am happy with the guesstimate that I used to do so.
I think I might also be due to write a planning post soon. I haven't done one for a while, but with the holidays fast approaching, I really had better start prioritizing my list!
Hope you have a great week!
