Sunny Day, Everything's A-Ok!9:10 pm
So I made a bunch of master patterns the other day, for Eddie. Slopers/Blocks whatever. I call them bases :) bodices and sleeves and pants in every size from newborn to 18months.
It's a good jumping off point for my next adventure. I still have so much work to do but it's nice to have a goal to work toward :)
This post already sounds a bit weird, I think it's because it's 2.30am and I have spent the last fortnight being woken up every hour by an adorable little piglet. I say it lovingly, but I am so so so tired.
This post isn't about sleep deprivation though! It's about this cute little top! It's the second version I've sewn up of the Chromium Tunic.
This flavour is 'vintage pillowcase' in 'Sesame Street'
I love how it turned out, it's lovely and lightweight. I didn't interface the collar because I was just testing the new & improved version of this pattern.
It's a go :) I lengthened the placket from last time, and the tunic length a little. It's a fun sew!
I enjoyed placing the pieces on the pillowcase and trying to make the most of the pattern, incorporating the little details into the shirt. A lot of my friends on Instagram reminisced a lot! It seems it was a popular children's sheet choice back in the day!
Now to draft up this tunic in other sizes & try those out. If you didn't get my totally vagueness up there, I'm going to start making proper patterns. This is like 3rd on the list, but I felt like starting in the middle.
Also I used the blogger app on my phone. It's pretty basic and I am not loving it. All my photos are at the bottom, wehh! We are currently camping, it's a lot of fun! This post is probably the strangest post I've written, my brain is so sluggy, I took the photos at Plainlands which is like a rest stop while driving between Brisbane & Toowoomba. Edison had already demolished some ham & cucumber and I thought it would be the greatest idea to take pics of her while vin was on the playground. Oh brain, you so funny.
Night ya'll xx
