Bitty Twin Boy Outfit
By Amy Mayen
I know. You’ve already seen me do a Bitty Twin boy outfit– using the exact same pattern! But sometimes I write these “sew & show” posts just for an excuse to hear myself talk.
Another outgrown tshirt upcycle
I’ve had a productive week! I interviewed over at This Blog Is Not For You, and if you read it; you already got a sneak peek of this outfit and a run down of what I’ve been up to.
You might also know that I really struggle sewing with knits. See the photo below…proof of my incompetence with stretchy fabric. I truly believe that if fabric had personalities, knits would be pompous, arrogant, and foul mannered. And unruly. I like saying unruly.
But this week I defeated my foe. I cannot wait to show you my pattern test for Sew Much Ado’s Skipper Top. (I made 2!) You would think I won an Olympic gold medal; that’s how victorious I feel.
If t-shirts were people, they would’ve been begging me for mercy. I’ve never made knits behave so well.
I went through my patterns, (now that I kicked knit’s
ass)…it’s like a whole new world is opened up for me. I have a whole pile of things I want to sew up.
And now, I’ve written a whole post about sewing knits while showing photos of a completely different project. Oops, my mental imbalance is showing; sorry bout’ that!
