My children are pretty canny, they have worked out very quickly,if they want a new outfit, to wave an O+S pattern under my nose and they are one step up the sewing ladder.
The girls all need new pajama's (or japama's as Small One words it), so Bed Time Story x 9 here we come!
3 for the twins as their last pair still fit, and 3 each for Small and Little One. 1 in the drawer , 1 in the wash and 1 on!( And yes I can count the Twins will be a pair short but no one , not even me , wants to sew 10 pairs of pajama's, no matter how cute they are)!
I finished up the Twins this afternoon. I made them from some beautiful Amy Butler LOVE flannelette. When I purchased it I was anticipating wool fabric, as it was listed as flannel, so I was planning Sunday Brunch jackets and skirts. However it being such gorgeous fabric I was not disappointed for long.
They are such a smart looking set and by replacing the ties with ribbon they were quicker to make AND I think the ribbon ties will stay done up better.
I had the same problem with attaching the neckband as I had previously....I think I may have marked the 'clip to' dots incorrectly. After stitching the neck band I am left with a little gap in my shoulder seam, so I had a fiddle and came up with this solution.
|The dreaded gap!|
I stitched over the gap with a wide zigzag using a small stitch length catching both edges neatly together.
I then trimmed away the seam excess trimming up to but not cutting the neckband.
