Hi you crafty bunch!
Back to the covid isolation fabric stash sewathon!!
(and more to come as I have more on the go, lol!)
So I decided to go with the summer cover-ups for my next sews as you can tell! I’m particularly self-conscious of my upper arms, and whilst I’m happy walking around the house in a cami or vest top, I prefer to wear a cover-up when I walk the dog or go out (when we’re allowed to go out again!).
I didn’t use a pattern for this lovely teal lace number, I took inspiration from an IG piccie by the owner of the fabric store I got the fabric from and decided to knock up my own!
Very simple, I just folded it in half, using the scalloped edge as my hem, kind of guestimated the width I wanted pretty much just by measuring from my elbow to elbow and cut that, cut a neck hole in the middle (and then fine tuned it when I’d tried it on pinned), hemmed the sides and neck, and then sewed up the sides. So a square with a neck hole!
Obligatory crazy face shot, with Rosie the dog about to take a pee in the background, lol.
And kimono style jacket in red crochet effect stretch fabric. I probably could have knocked this up without a pattern (as I have in the past with a nice chiffon one I made a couple of years ago) but I did use one just so I didn’t have to bother thinking
And more crazy faces, this is what you get when Mr Loops is my photographer! Thanks to him for doing it tho cos it was fricking baking out there and he was stood full in the sun getting seared
Oh and the shorts I made for Star Wars day
Anyways, hope you like them!
