I finished off Amy's coat once she reluctantly agreed to my button choice.
I whipped up another pair of leggings for Amy using the ottobre licorice leggings pattern and a remnant of fabric I've had for over a decade (thereby proving that no piece of fabric is too small to be kept - I loved the print and although I never imagined back then in my childless days that less than a metre of printed jersey would ever be useful, it has been and fabulously so).
Another cap in a smaller size for a birthday gift tomorrow. Amy's choice (she's angling for a matching one of course). I'll do a spot of embroidery tonight to make it sparkle a little.
I love this layer on layer wrap stretch top. I will go a treat with the party skirt. Another remnant, one I bought recently at Rathdowne remnants to reward Amy for good behaviour (best $5 I ever spent and this top only used a bit over half of it!). I made the pattern up in the cutting.
I also refashioned this top - a printed jersey I adore, but when I made the original garment it was never right. The waist was too low so the wrap part sat wrong, the neck gaped, it was too big, too long - the whole shebang. So I finally pulled it apart and put it back together in more pleasing proportions.
And lastly, this skirt got a good going over. It started out at craft camp 2007, a beautiful embroidered eyelet linen in six panels with a stretchy lycra waistband. So I massively shortened it, took off the waistband, shaped each of the panels, added an invisible zip and I like it much better. I also think it is much more flattering! And extra points if you noticed that wee Amy in the above left photo is wearing the same T shirt as in yesterday's post, how's that for extended wear?!
I simply can't imagine what may arise tomorrow...
