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.
Here is the short sleeved version. I love the lenght of the shirt, my kidney are warm and safe!
Long sleeved Shirt
The one with the collar. I love it, the collar falls great and is very easy to set in.
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!
The right pants have a vespa on their butt 🙂
More tiny onsies and pants!
Now I´m going to rest and let this chilli red jersey stare at me.
