More joggers/pegs/boxers

Image
Some recent FOs in this polygon animal print cotton/Lycra from Vinegar & Honey Co. Baby Bear Joggers (size 4 with size 3 length elastic in waist) with drawstring in waistband and pockets. Gradually working my way through the more complicated options. None of this is particularly hard, but switching between serger and sewing machine and setting up twin needle or making buttonholes is mildly annoying. Capri length (actually slightly longer than capri cut line) Peg Legs with contrast contour waistband since I only had 1 yard. Remind myself to set differential feed back to zero before serging clear elastic in waistband. Haven't tried the trick where you feed the elastic through the hole in the foot of the serger. Used leftovers to make size 3 Pirate's Booty boxers. There wasn't a big enough piece to cut the main boxers piece as designed. I folded the pattern piece and added seam allowance to create side seams. I did the same thing on the boxers I made with leftovers from …

Slouchy Headwarmer Gifts

Patterns for pirates free Slouchy Headwarmer pattern in various fabrics for Sean's teachers. It's a 4-way neckwarmer/headband/ponytail beanie/beanie. Swim fabric for swim teacher, athletic fabrics and CL for gymnastics teachers, Liverpool and French Terry for preschool teacher. I cut most of them larger than the suggested 20 x 20.

Family raglans, pegs, joggers, and new Cocoon

Image
Patterns for Pirates patterns: Jolly Roger Raglan (kid), Baby Bear Joggers in jegging knit and black CL (cut with pattern piece perpendicular to selvedge for better stretch in this fabric). Relaxed Raglan banded tunic length with off-the-shoulder hack (only 1.5 or 2" taken off neckline, not 3 as in the blog post for the hack), capri length Peg Legs in the jegging fabric cut sideways. They are a little too loose compared to the ones cut the other direction, lol. I will have to go back and put elastic in the waistband.
Cole's Creations pattern- Jerry's raglan
This was my first time doing full length sleeves on any of these patterns and they were all a little too long for all of us, lol.
Penguin fabric is Joann Doodles cotton interlock, sleeves are all C/L from Purpleseamstress, jegging knit is from Purpleseamstress.
This time I did the elastic waistband on the joggers instead of the yoga band. Next time I'll get fancier and try the drawstring waist and pockets.


Cocoon …

More JRR and Peg Legs

Image
2 more Jolly Roger Raglans. Green CL from Purpleseamstress online. Science fabric is flannel from JoAnn. The back of the shirt is the green CL. Sushi fabric is Doodles from JoAnn.
Black/white DBP left over from Nina dress. So Sew English. Used black CL for contour waistband and put in clear elastic. Jegging knit Pegs from Purpleseamstress. It has slightly more stretch in the direction parallel to the selvedge. These are pretty tight in my usual size but probably would have been ok one size up. I still wear them under dresses/skirts.
