This outfit is a few weeks old and has already gotten lots of wearing time.
It was made that weekend where I sort of pretended I had a deadline and sewed almost for an entire weekend while hubby hung out with the kids. Glorious!
(Feel free to borrow the idea, ha)
The t-shirt is the Celestial Tee from Figgy's Patterns and the pants are a below-knee length version of the Mini Hudson Pants from True Bias.
All the fabrics are from Girl Charlee. The orange and pink is this amazing thin stretchy French Terry and the heathered blue is a rib.
It's my first time sewing the Celestial Tee and it worked like a charm. It's a super simple pattern with a front and back piece, three pleats at the front neckline, a neck rib and a high-low hem. That's it and the result is a super wearable t-shirt with a few details that makes it a bit more interesting than the average t-shirt. Many more to come for sure!
I want to lengthen it too to a cool t-shirt dress.
This outfit was part of my fun with my new Janome coverstitch and you can see all three types of stitches that the machine can do in this photo above.
The neckband has the triple decorative stitch.
The sleeves and bottom is hemmed with a traditional two stitch coverstitch. And the rib on the pockets is stitched with the 1 thread chain stitch.
All three types are stretchable stitches.
