A lot of new stuff.

08 Feb

This weekend I finally had time to sew again!

I need(ed) a few new basic shirts for me, I raided through my closet and threw out anything I don´t really, really like. In time I want to get rid of everything storebought.

So, that gave me an excuse to cut into my new jersey (cotton with a little bit of lycra). I hate it when jersey (the 100% cotton one) tends to roll in the edges endlessly. No matter how often you iron, steam and press – it always rolls back. I´m happy to report, the few percents of lycra stop the rolling and it holds the shape way better than the pure cotton jersey.

I chose the Renfrew from Sewaholic. It´s pretty basic but very versatile and comes together quick and easy without any fuss. I made size 4 and took in th side and sleeve seams 1cm.

In another matter, a friend of mine is expecting twins. So, I immediatly went into Baby-clothes-sewing-mode when she told me 🙂

I don´t know the sex of the little ones yet, so I made something that girls and boys can wear out of my shirt fabrics. I used the Regenbogenbody pattern and the monkeypants pattern from Schnabelinas blog, which are downloadable for free!

Now I´m going to rest and let this chilli red jersey stare at me.
