Christmas is over. I had a good time.
But right now I feel unfit, heavy. Not svelte. The antidote of course is to stop overindulging and get moving. Get back on the bike. Literally.
In between sewing, that is.
I recently made some items for DD from black scuba knit that she'd bought. I made TNT Elle pants, not blogged this time as they keep getting made over and over and over. I had some strips of material left so I found myself digging through the knit stash to find some cute stable knit 'pop art' scraps I had too and an old Kwik Sew tank pattern.
Can't find it on their site, it's probably OOP but there's a tank with a similar neckline K3844 here. The body would have to be altered a bit but then again the slight swing top shape is everywhere right now..
But for basic fit I seem to be rediscovering the genius of early KS knit patterns that were drafted by Kirsten Martenssen. They are so good. Keepers.
Anyway, I used view C and inserted a panel down the CF and CB and now I have a new cycling top. I serged all edges then turned them over and zig zagged. Easy! I love the serger for things like this.
No more honey cup cakes with whisky cream, made by my SIL. She is a very good cook.
They've all been eaten ; )
Have a Happy 2016.
