Sew Kid's Clothes
|Cate's Halloween costume |
inspiration. Perhaps the kitty
should dress up as Cate?
Knits are famously forgiving and you can wear a slightly oversized t-shirt and not have it look really wrong. So, I will be making a couple more Renfrews. I also recently bought a Tiramisu dress pattern and then realized I probably should have bought a Red Velvet dress pattern since that's the sewalong that's coming up. Hmmm...maybe I better go back to the Cake website. The Tiramisu is assembled flat with the side seams sewed up at the very end. That's great because I think it will make it easier to fine tune the fit and take it in as needed. I also bought a pattern for the Espresso leggings. I wear a lot of leggings and tights in the winter here. It gets chilly here in the winter and the builders in this area don't know how to insulate properly so it also gets cold in the apt. because I refuse to turn the heat on during the day when it's 55 degrees outside (and, consequently, not much warmer inside). So, leggings and tights are a must with skirts.
Sew a Wrap Skirt
I was thinking that a wrap skirt would be useful as I can tie it more tightly or loosely or whatever depending on my fluctuating waistline (hopefully my waistline will continue decreasing, but I do get bloated every now and again, I'm sure you know what I'm talking about). I love the look of the Miette skirt by Tilly of Tilly and the Buttons and the Great British Sewing Bee fame. The largest size is still slightly too small for my current waistline. I'm trying to decide between just going ahead and making and wearing the largest size now on the basis that my waist size is only off by a couple of inches and there is plenty of coverage in the overlap in the back so it's okay if it overlaps a bit less (the side seams would be slightly off, but hopefully not for long). Or, maybe I'll wait awhile and make it when I start to fall into the size range of the pattern.
Sew Craft Projects
I'm currently in a swap for handmade knitting needle/crochet hook holder/wrap/thing so I need to get busy making that. I do have some time because it's not due until sometime in Nov. but if I get involved in the Red Velvet sewalong I don't want something else due at the same time as the sewalong and needing my attention.
