This must be the most embarrassing photo shoot ever (just picture cars driving by, my neighbors possibly peeking through the windows)…and my publishing it online can only be a testament to how crazy I can sometimes be…especially considering that people normally consider me a pretty serious person!
Top: Easy cap sleeve tee by Jocole scoop neck version with 3/8 inch (1 cm) neck and sleeve bands. By the way I recently stopped using the twin needle and simply used a single row of elastic stitch…much less hassle but still nice results.
Pants: the lycra I found is quite tick so it was a breeze to work with. I added an elastic waistband because the pattern was sitting too low for my taste. I totally copied the pattern from the original pants.
The gold topstitching metallic thread was a total pain to sew…the thread kept on breaking despite my tweaking tension setting and trying every possible needle combination (except the metallic needle…) I used thin paper as backing instead of stabilizer which helped a little to make smoother stitches.
I really hope you will come back and read my blog again after this! Now I’d better go to my practice class…with my new outfit!
By the way….what do you think of my new banner? I am trying to do something different here but not sure what…
