Onwards and upwards. To get over the dissapointment of cutting too much off the hem of my skirt I moved onto a new sewing project with lightning speed.
I am happy to report that the first project from the Japanese pattern book has been a success. The diagrams are very clear and I didn’t have any problems with this simple little pair of pants.
The fabric is a grey/brown ‘ripstop’ weave cotton from Spotlight. With the natural grid on the fabric I couldn’t resist adding some cross stitched knee patches.
I’ve been studying the diagrams for a little hooded jacked from the same book. Jasper doesn’t need a jacket in Northern Territory, but we’ll be travelling to Tasmania and Victoria in January and I think a lightweight jacket might be useful and would look super cute 🙂
ETA: We’ll be in Darwin for the next few days, so I’m taking a break from Blogtoberfest until the end of the week.
