I decided June would be the month that I would make items I really need.
I always get excited when I discover I really need something....Capris, short sleeved tops and a rain jacket are all on my list.
So far, I've made three pairs of capris, two tops and I'm having a great time making a casual jacket using an old issue of Burda World of Fashion. But that will be another post.
Pattern: Silhouette's Yoga Pants
Fabric:Stretch Cotton Sateen
Size: 8. (Silhouette sizes represent finished
Changes to pattern: 1. Added 2" to top of pant
because I don't like low rise pants.
2. Added cute pockets on side of capris.
Comments: I love this pattern! It fits like a dream and is so easy to make. I made a muslin in a ponte knit. For those I used size 6 and they were perfect.For the stretch cotton, I really needed the bigger size.The waistband is wrapped around 2" elastic.
Next item was this top:
Pattern: Silhouette's Giorgio's Top
Fabric: Polyester Lycra
Size 2. (Again, sizes not those of the Big Four ).
Changes: Nothing to do with fit. I scooped the neck lower with my French Curve and made the sleeves longer than the short version of the pattern.
this muslin turned into a wearable one.The back is really cute,I think.
This is what the two pieces look like on me.
And with that, I`m going to call it quits because my laptop is behaving really badly.
I do hope you all had time to sew this weekend. Have a great week and let`s all hope for sunny and warm weather for this week.
