Well I was hoping to draft a pair of trackies, as I have don't this once before and it worked out really well. Especially for the boys who have no hips but have long legs. My boys can still fit into size 3 pants, except for the length and some rise, but I never actually got that far.
What I did manage was to draft a poncho. I was inspired by the poncho that Natalie from ModerKip makes. I cant suggest that it turned out quite as good as hers though. My mistakes were not lack of pattern though, rather lack of detail when drafting the pattern. As the front is lower than the back, I wasn't sure exactly where to take the measurements from when deciding the length. Then of course the front and the back were different lengths (which I altered with a pair of scissors :D). I also made it out of baby wale, lined in minky and inner out of flannel. This is not the best starting point when you have just drafted the pattern and have not tested it. Minky is hard to sew with anyway, and then making it even thicker with the baby wale and flannel makes the denim sewing needle look like a delicate needle.
If anyone has any good ideas for a button please let me know. I also want to change the buttons on the Farbenmix Olivia overdress as well which is made from the same fabric. And its also the same buttons. I have already cut the holes though... ETA i think I will use the ribbon, the ribbon is around the hood.
Anyway, sign up below to show off your self drafted projects.
