cozy sewing

a sunday afternoon to myself? out comes the sewing maching! it's okay to sew with the little man around, but i do get a lot more done without my little helper ;)


for instant gratification, i made a jersey skirt from an old t-shirt (i made a 90-minute-shirt with the same fabric already). i did some funky stitching at the hem just to add a little more interest.



after that i started a pair of pants i had been planning for a while now. i didn't have a pattern for it, i just loosely traced another pair of pants and then freestyled the rest. it's a lot simpler than i thought it would be, i googled how to best sew a jersey waistband and found a video tutorial (in german) which was great.

 i'm so so pleased with the way it turned out, that i'm itching to make more. one for the little man, and even maybe even one for me! i love jersey waistbands, so i might start making a skirt with one for me first...

I love the stitching on the skirt. It makes it look expensive.

Thanks for this great idea! I'll try sewing with suchwaistbands myself-and who knows? Maybe I'll come up with making a pair of jogging pants for my monday "keep fits"...
