Quick post. More makes for Kids Clothes Week! Yay! So I finished off the leggings and knit t shirts using New Look 6016 < I have some serious love for this pattern>. Promised a short post so here are the deets 😉
Construction for the top required setting in the sleeve after ease stitching. Ick!!! Too fiddly on these tiny garments using a lightweight super drapey fabric. Flat construction on the next tee and boom!
Again, the sizing is spot on. The only problem is my lack of patience. Though my patience has (significantly) improved since last year I found myself really wanting to start the next project once the major stuff was done. However one of my sewing musts now is absolutely no new project till one is finished, done, finito!…grrrr <sigh>. I did stick to my resolution though I desperately wanted to move on to my second Hollyburn. Determined to start my Hollyburn on Monday, I finished these off Sunday night. The hemming won’t win any awards. It will do though. NOTE TO SELF. Find resources on hemming fine knits for future reference.
Anyway am so happy with how these turned out that I kissed the pattern envelope said
Thank you. You have done good!
Before putting it away. Challenge done – I can go back to selfish sewing!
