Blogger I despise you today, but thank you for making me figure out a way to work around your bad behavior. I've been playing around with HTML in preparation for a day like this. You thought you had me. Ha!
Hello there people! I've been in a sewing funk lately. I'm pretty sure the fantastic vintage style dress that I want to make will not be made in time for the pahty that I will be attending in a few weeks. I'm going to go to Anthro tomorrow to get motivated. I'm hoping I walk away empty handed and inspired.
So here is some more sewing with knits. I almost didn't even post this picture because it looks like 90% of what I sew and it's getting a little boring.
Where I live we get a late Summer. September and October are the hottest months so I needed to make some lightweight pj's for the little one. The cars fabric I used a long time ago and I had enough left to make a top .I wish I had bought more of the orange stripe fabric when it was available because I have a crush. You can see some of it here, in a not-so-good application.
The top pattern is Happy Animals by Ottobre and the pant pattern is just unfortunate. The fit is not really great and I have to tweak it so much at this point I'm ready to draft my own monkey pants so I will refrain from using the pattern name. I know many of you have used it and love it, but it just doesn't fit my little guy that great. If you want to buy ready made monkey pants I found a store with the cutest designs.
