PHB Days 190-191 New Threads!
14 June - Can't tell you how excited I am about these dungarees. I'm reworking the pattern to create new sizes and make it fit a bit better, but I made these overalls using chocolate brown ripstop and lined with light blue and chocolate striped merino. I made them in one night and am really excited about the next version which will be added to the goshorty line.
... and here's the back view. Delicious!
15 June: And here's the second kimono I made from the marthaf...ing pattern, only this one I made shorter and changed the front panel so that there was no need for bias binding all the way around the front; just around the neck line. I used organic cotton jersey knit, and the panel is a darling little cowpokes fat quarter I ordered from Sew Pretty a while back. The ties are great for lengthening the wearing ages of the garment but they are fiddly and annoying so I think I'll whip out the snap press for the next size up!
