Working on her fighting stance. Ha! The Details:
My Winter Brights look, all laid out.I love the way this jumper turned out! I modified the original pattern by adding a full lining, eliminating the separate waistband, and creating a high-low hem with some crazy angles in the back that resulted in a cool coattail look. I also made my own tassels out of knit fabrics. I took the theme very seriously–only using knit fabrics and thread. And fold over elastic. Is fold over elastic knit? I mean… it does stretch, so…. I knew I wanted to make my eared hat for at least one PR&P look, and I think it lends to the style of this outfit quite well. Emerson loves it and insisted on wearing it even while eating her post-photoshoot ice cream reward.
Some understitching.All-in-one elastic waistband detail.
Fully lined! I used a cheat seam on the lining side seam for turning so that my closing hand-stitches wouldn’t be on the hemline. I knew that it would be important to finish the seams of this loose sweater knit fabric, but I wasn’t sure how I would accomplish this until I went digging through my FOE drawer. I had just enough of this color – destiny! Now I have no fear of my seams unraveling in the wash. Plus it’s really pretty to look at. :)
That’s all! If there is anything you have a question about, please ask in the comments. It feels good to be using my camera and sewing just for fun again. Please be sure to check out the other designers’ looks and vote for your favorite (me me me, I hope) on the Project Run and Play blog.
