This was one of those times where I was glad that I’d kept fairly comprehensive online notes about the pattern, including the order of construction. I reprinted the pattern and cut it out a size larger than previously, and added significant length to the cuff pieces. The fabric is more of the floral Liberty cotton/spandex jersey that I bought tat the Alannah Hill outlet, paired with a plain khaki viscose/spandex jersey.
Clare is rather fond of the bubble hem that this tunic has. I rather like it too! But it’s definitely a length that requires leggings. Enter the Go To Leggings pattern and more of the floral jersey.
Once again, this is a simplest leggings pattern ever. One pattern piece, sew up the inside leg seams, the crotch seam, fold over the waist and make an elasticised casing, and hem. Too easy!
That’s it for recently sewn knit dresses for the girls – but I do have a couple of woven ones to show off in my next blog post. I have been busy at the machine and overlocker lately with more knits for myself too. Once again, I need to keep the blogging up to pace with the sewing!
