The floral knit

25 Jan

Ooo I’m being a bit updated this week aren’t I?!

So long, long ago I promised you I’d made something in my floral jersey that I got 3 yds for £5 at Walthamstow! I did make something, and then I made an additional something so it seems only fair to share it all in one big share fest.

Actually, what I made is kind of ‘boring’ in sewing terms, but I just wanted something I could lounge about in and feel comfortable but yet sling on some kind of footwear and feel comfortable wearing it to work. And so it became this:

Wonky of wonksville!

Looks a little plain, no? How about a bit of beltage?

DSCF8524

Now that’s a look I can go out in. The former is perfect for lounging in though.

And then I had about maybe 0.5-0.75m of fabric left. And I squeezed out this:

DSCF8526

Another comfortable little number and it really jazzes up a plain white t. Oh, and check out these pleated sleeves guy!

DSCF8527

Both were made from adaptations of the patterns given in Sew U Home Stretch.

Speaking of patterns, check out my latest eBay hauls:

DSCF8528 DSCF8529

Total for both: £4.39

WHAAA?!!!

I love eBay! And whilst the envelopes may look  a little tatty, the insides are perfect

DSCF8530

Well, perfect for patterns hailing from the 70s!

They’re a little small so will require grading up a size or two which I so cba to do yet, but they’ll turn into something someday.

Oh, can you tell I charged my camera batteries?!!
