meet my twin and newest babies

long long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, before the evil chickenpox got to me, i was happily sewing a new jacket for myself…

well, fastforward to this week, i’ve finally managed to finish it!

oh, and say hello to my twin: the adjustable tailor’s dummy!

anyway, i used the same fabric as this bag, plus an upholstery Laura Ashley fabric (for collar, shoulder & cuff parts) and polyester chiffon (for the detail on the collar).
i got the pattern for the jacket from a Burda magazine, and managed to do halfway of the jacket till just before i got sick…once i was well enough again, i realized somebody in the house accidentally threw away the copy of the instructions page, so i finished sewing it without any instructions, so yay me!

yesterday i finished making another one of my newest baby in a few hours:
this was prolly one of the easiest projects i’ve done just buy 0,65cm of jersey fabric of your choice (in my case, i bought a Nanso fabric that’s on a special offer at Eurokangas), cut a hole in the middle of the width of the fabric (for your head), sew the side seams, leaving around 40cm holes on each side for your arms. done!

i made mine asymmetrical though, so i made the hole for the head not in the middle, but closer to one side, and then cut the bottom (hemline) somewhat diagonally and just left it like that (i didn’t sew the hemline).

the “hardest” part was that i don’t have a serger/overlocker (=obras) so i mainly used the zigzag stitch, which turned out to be imperfect. but whatever. if it’s wearable, i’m happy .

and the fun part is, i can wear it backwards too..so i can choose which shoulder is longer than the other, left or right, hmmm…
