I purchased this fabric the Thursday before my wedding. My work colleague/friend who also sews, who was over from Houston, and my older sister from Devon wanted to visit my beloved Walthamstow Market so I drove them there and I purchased 4 metres of this lovely blue cotton knit fabric which as you can see had a cute border on it.
I have thought for some time that I need to make myself some smart looking PJ's that don't look quite like pyjamas (if you know what I mean) and of course this has nothing to do with the fact that on some days, I can think of nothing better than lazing around in PJ's for the best part of the day, oops my secret is out (blush).
I decided to use my OOP Kwiksew 2948 twinset pattern which is a real TNT for me now - I love this pattern, and made the cardigan without any buttons and the little vest. Both these pieces were entirely made using my serger, which was a delightful process given my last 9 projects.
I placed the hemline for the sleeves, front back, vest and pants on the boarder and even cut the front band from the border print too which I think gives a really a nice contrast.
I love these, they feel stylish and comfortable and if it gets too warm I can take the jacket off. Not bad for £4.00.
Hmmmmmm what next????????? Catch you later........
