I had a huge urge to do a sewing project today, but of course there’s a lot of prep involved before you actually get to the sewing. AND a mom never knows how she’ll feel after finally getting the kids to bed! Today I was exhausted and didn’t have a lot of oomph after bed time!
However, I managed to locate all the necessary materials and trace the pattern onto craft paper.
I’m going to make this jumper from Simple Modern Sewing, a very cute Japanese pattern book translated into English. I bought this cute, simple fabric at Pincushion on Union Street in San Francisco:
But I will make it shorter. That length on me wouldn’t look too good, I think. I think just below the knee is the most flattering spot for my dresses or skirts to hit. I think mine will be more fitted, less roomy, than the model wears it. The first pattern I tried from this book turned out so huge! I learned that I need to follow the finished measurements, rather than the book’s definition of what the sizes mean.
Hopefully tomorrow I’ll be able to get to the sewing!
