First up is this totally awesome tutorial for a knit pencil skirt. It was so easy to make and it really does fit perfectly. I envision many more.
I made the top using Maria Denmark's Kirsten Kimono Tee pattern - free! This navy is my first effort, made of a slinky rayon jersey I picked up in the $2.95 section of G Street Fabrics in Virginia. It was much too big at first and I took it in twice. I also lowered the neckline to make it more flattering to me.
This is my second attempt at the tshirt. I drafted a drape neck for this one. I love how it turned out, but it is a hair snug on me (which is why it's being modeled by the Lady In Red - Jeremy's birthday present to me and the cool thing referenced in the title of this post).
And my third effort, which is the best yet:
I need to bring in the neckline a little on the sides to keep it from slipping, and I think I could still take in the sides a tiny bit, but how cool is it that I made my own tshirt? I'm pretty excited.
