I have been sewing for me a little bit lately, though this is the first I have blogged. I started wearing my blue Weekend Getaway again, and while it is a little tighter than when I made it (thanks Sam) I decided to make the same size as I have finally started to loose some of this post baby weight. I decided to make it in a tunic length, I bought my first pair of leggings ever so I wanted something to go with it, though I think I will need to loose a bit more before I dare wear them out of the house, haha!
I used this lightweight shirting I picked up forever ago, I think it was meant to make Ben a Negroni, but I never dared (though it is on the list now). Adult clothes take up so much material so I was intimidated.
I made the size 14 with a FBA for my giant nursing boobs (well, giant to me). The blue dot one doesn't have a FBA so it is a little tight in that area.
I added black to the sleeves to tie in the facing and cut the sleeve on the bias because I was sick of trying to match the plaids. It would have been a quick sew if I didn't have to do that, but I can't stand when stripes/plaids don't match.
I was also a little intimidated by the FBA the first two times I made this so I skipped it, but oh my gosh! Liesl's method and instructions are soooo easy. Seriously, don't skip it if you need it!
I am still not so sure I like the whole showing my face and trying to use my remote (getting myself in frame can be tricky!), but I have a whole list of things to make for me so I better get used to it;)
