Last week was Kid’s Clothes Week, and as usual I made some pajamas. To celebrate, finally, refurbishing my ugly mustard dress I used up the rest of the fabric. The non-childish print is very sweet on her, making me wish I’d sewn her a dress instead.
Casper got a pair of underwear, which he would not let me photograph on him, but they are also adorable.
Thanks for stopping by.
…it lifts your cheeks.
My latest batch of underwear is the cutest, but sadly, a bit tight. Because I, with my 6 years of sewing experience, completely disregarded the 70% stretch requirement of Jalie 2568. Underwear is small, can 50% stretch really be so different than 70%? Yes, the difference is slightly uncomfortably tight underwear.
I’m not getting discouraged. I happen to have a degree in mathematics, and I am using my impressive math skills to expand the Jalie pattern to accommodate 50% stretch fabrics. Wish me luck. Has anybody else successfully converted a pattern in this way?
Also, check out my Instagram feed @plaid_thursdays, though currently it doesn’t have much sewing, just vacation and decluttering pics.
