I guess there is no more putting off the reality of winter now that it November, and a change in season meant the dreaded children’s wardrobe switcharoo. uuuuuuuugh.
It turns out that both Gianna and I were lacking in the winter wardrobe departments, and because driving and walking around shopping malls is pretty much not feasible for me right now, I decided to do what any sewing-addicted mother would do. Sew clothes instead.
Jalie’s Raglan Top pattern (3245) was just the ticket. It has a massive size range, 12 months to US women’s 22, which means this basic pattern will be useful to me and my girls for a long time.
I used the lovely RK laguna jersey knits that I discovered at Quilt Market (and purchased through Imagine Gnats) to make myself one tee and Gianna two.
I have a feeling I’ll be making more.
The pattern also comes with a tunic-length version which I made for Gianna, but failed to get a picture of her in. Trust me, it’s adorable and perfect.
My top was blended between a few different sizes. T-shirts on my are usually too tight in the hips, or too loose in the shoulders when I buy them in the store. This top is already a little swingy around the hips, but I let it out extra and the result is amazingly comfortable.
I needed this quick boost of a project. I’ve been trying to pants-sew again now that my leg is doing so much better and blahhhhhhhh….. It’s not going super well.
What sewing projects are you adding to your wardrobe this winter?
