Why, yes, I have been sewing!
Ottobre 3/2010 - #34 California skirt - done in Frozen-themed fabric and fussy cut to take advantage of the character placement with fine-wale corduroy in a purple/blue ombre (reminded me of the northern lights) for the contrast gores
Jalie 3136 leotard done in contrasting, glitzy lycra and turned into a crop top for cheer (with my go-to Jalie yoga shorts pattern #3022 for the bottoms)
Back view - gotta love that fabric!
Basic design with stunning fabrics - sports bra and shorts from Jalie 3247 - the shorts are made from shimmery teal stretch velvet
Completing this cheer look for winter is Jalie
Back view - the top is meant to be layered with the sports bra peeking out
#sparkle - now with attitude! (from Justice...I hate sewing sequins.)
Here's the outfit in action at tumbling tonight.
Simplicity 2190 - layered skirt from scuba knit plaid (and black ponte knit - in the colors of my daughter's team!)
Kwik Sew 0155 (make-up bag (for DD's cheer competition cosmetics) - I ended up making all 4 views (need to take some pics!)
McCall's 6171 in red ponte knit and lined with zebra ITY knit - a really fun and comfy look for work
