Today I got some more work done on my Annabelle jacket (size 6 mos). It is both easy and hard to sew tiny things. The pattern pieces are small and tracing/cutting went really quickly! Also, sewing seams is a breeze. But setting tiny little sleeves? Yowza!!! Not an easy task at all. I did get a couple of pleats in the lining but I didn't bother to unpick. I got one major kink in the fabric so I had to unstitch about 1/4 of the sleeve and redo it. Eh.
This jacket is stinking adorable. It's so tiny!!! It's so cute!!!!!! The color is really, really deep purple so I overexposed photos a bit to try to get the color to show. I can't wait to get some good pics of the finished jacket.
If you look closely, you can see a couple little pleats that snuck in while setting the sleeve. Booooo!
All serged and ready to "bag"
Just CUTE! I was really good and am using fabric I had in stash as a lining. It's 100% cotton from the kid fabric section at JoAnn. I bought it ages ago and it was being used as tablecloths when I was selling at the Farmers Market.
POCKETS! Little, tiny, pockets!
Adorable little sleeve and sleeve tabs. I think I'll redo the top stitching. I was intending on having the fashion fabric show but then I pinned it this way. And sewed it. Sewed it REALLY well so...yeah. :)
In the knitting world, I finally finished my sock (it's worsted weight yarn on size 5 needles - I'm slow!)
That is supposed to be ribbing. It is not. For some reason consistently doing k1, p1 is TOUGH. I got off track and never got back on. LOL! Because of that, my sock isn't as stretchy up top and I have to fight it over my fat feet. My kitchner stitch is pathetic but when they're on my feet you can't tell so...we're going to pretend I did it perfectly.
Sock #2 - ahhhhh now THAT my friends is nice ribbing!
