I decided to sew up a pattern that I hadn't sewn before so I reached for OOP Kwik Sew 3229. It looked simple enough.. My plans were to narrow the legs quite a bit and maybe add elastic to make them joggers.. here's what happened.
|Kwik Sew 3229 and a camouflage poly-cotton blend from Hancock's|
I lengthened the bodice by three inches.
|I swear the sun will just not cooperate with me. I squint in every single picture.|
|It looks like my right leg is off grain and the pattern is running upwards. Its not.. I had just adjusted the belt I had on and the waist was caught underneath the belt.|
I opted not to do a fabric belt and used a 1 inch elastic instead of the 3/8 as instructed in the instructions.
This was a $2.50 poly-cotton blend fabric and I initially was just using this as a muslin and although I don't love it, I decided to wear it out this day for lunch anyway.
The bodice does have a front and back facing and I really liked that. So no bias binding or narrow hem at neck and arms.
This wasn't a terrible pattern but its also not one Ill probably be running back to either. The wide legs are just too much for what I wanted in this particular jumper.
This is me signing off!
Talk to y'all later,
