Firstly, some lovely flowery cotton that I inherited from my Mum. I don't think that it is quilting cotton - the fabric is too wide and also it has a high thread count:
And if something works once, twice, they let's work it again! The fabric this time is another 100% cotton that I used to make a wearable muslin Sorbetto. And no, I don't plan wearing them together!!
I knocked out a couple of Simplicity 4221 skirts, how I love that pattern for ease of use and looks. This time the fabrics were a silky, lightweight poly in black with white dots. It reminds me of Star Trek and the stars whizzing past at warp speed:
Nothing to note - the skirt is lined with white Bemberg Ambiance and has a narrow lace trim. Oh, and it is soooo swishy! I will probably have to make a red jersey top (or two) to go with this. Or maybe fushia. Mmmmm!
The second skirt is made from a rayon fabric from Batik Butik which appears to be going out of business. There do appear to be a number of retailers who still sell it, so take a look. It is goegeous fabric - lightweight a fluid. I love it.
This last photo shows the subtle red shading. Love, love, love it!
A few quick MMM photos to finish off. On Friday (MMM - 10) I worked from home so slummed it in PJ's all day but wore these handknitted socks:
These are really fun socks as they are make up of the leftovers from about 13 other pairs! In no way do they match (other than stitches, rows etc) - but note the pink toes. I made a pair for Mr. SDSC and his have blue toes so we know whose are whose!
Yesterday (MMM - 12) I wore these:
They are a great pair of socks, using the Knit Picks Felici yarn again. The yarn is a supersoft merino that unfortunately fuzzes a little, however that can be excused because the stripes are so cute! This colorway is called Chimney.
To summarize my MMM garments over the last few days:
14. Leftover Socks
15. Chimney Socks
16. Springtime Jimmy Jams
Phew, that was one long post - I hope you managed to stick it out!! How was your weekend? Lots of sewing?
