These past few days I've been sewing like a maniac. Fabric storage has become a problem lately - there is just no room in my tiny apartment to put it all. Don't even let me get started on the yarn. My yarn storage is not the most elegant solution, interior design-ly speaking.
|I honesty thought all my yarn would all fit in the green box.|
But back to fabric. Same problem, it's just stuffed in my closet along with my clothes. The super smart solution to this problem - use the fabric to make clothes. That I will have no place to put.
I really should start to sew for other people, but as far as my technique goes, I'm not just there yet and I don't want my friends to give me the side-eye when I gift them with a too short/tight/long/wide piece of clothing.
I'll just stop my moaning now and post some pictures.
|Pajama pants. Cotton. No lion - he sleeps tonight ;)|
|Burda shorts from the 3/2011 issue.|
|Pockets and a front zipper. The zipper nearly did me in.|
|Very thin and see-trough jersey tank.|
|Messed up the back a bit.|
The jersey top was sewn following the tutorial Sewing with knits tutorial from Noodlehead. Let me tell you something about sewing with knits - it's hell! From the cutting to the sewing - nothing went nice and smooth. I hate jersey. I hate the fact that I still have jersey fabric in my stash. But I love to wear jersey clothes. It's comfy. So I guess I'm in for more jersey frustration.
I left the edges of the top unfinished, because that seems to be very trendy right now (at least on my shirts from Zara or h&m). I just might wear this one out in public.
