I didn’t have a lot of time to sew this week, just a few hours on Thursday, but I’m still pretty in love with all of the things I did make. While I have a few projects lined up for our adoption, I am waiting on fabric to arrive for those, so I continued my work on fall clothing.
As you can see, I had a bit of selfish sewing going on up in here. This is the Four Seasons Cardigan from Everything Your Mama Made. I like the fit, but I was not a fan of sewing this one. Some things are just tedius, and hemming all of the edges on this was just that.` `I used a twin needle to hem all edges, and now I’m thinking I should have just used a straight cut. It also doesn’t drape as well as I had hoped, which has nothing to do with the pattern and everything to do with my fabric choice….but I loved that fox fabric and I wanted a cardi out of it. I think I will probably used a different fabric and the duster length next time. Fabric came from Girl Charlee.
I continued my work on Zeke’s fall wardrobe with another hoodie. Seriously, I forsee only a bazillion more of these. I love this pattern, the ease with which it comes together, and the comfort factor. I mean seriously, I’m on the look out for a momma sized pattern that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg in fabric. The patterns was free from Brindille and Twig, and the fabric is Birch Organics that I got on super sale from Fabric Worm. This fabric is so soft and squishy. Plus, I lined this hood with cotton velour as well. He’s a spoiled baby on a budget 🙂
I also made an outfit for Zekey. Stretchy and comfy are two main qualifiers for toddler winter clothes. This meets both criteria. I need pants that will not pose a threat to our sanity when he tries to squirm and run away naked during the winter. You can’t live naked in the winter, it’s just a truth one must accept. The hoodie is Brindille and Twig (seriously love it ya’ll), and the pants are the harem pants from B&T. They come together easy, they stretch, and this is how you take a slightly expensive fabric and make it go the distance for your outfit. You mix 1 yard of your statement fabric with 1 yard of inexpensive cotton/lycra, and voila!…cute outfit on a budget. The fabric is once again Birch Organics from Fabric Worm, and you can find this print on sale still, if they have it in stock.
