After I finished my Project run and play sew along last week I actively started brainstorming, I even asked my husband if he had any ideas. I asked him which lounge clothes he prefers on me and based on his answer I realized I should make some summer lounge wear! In the last weeks I have seen multiple beautiful summer dresses so I am jumping on the summer bandwagon.
I took my pile of woman Ottobres and flipped through all of them and settled on a set of shorts and a sleeveless shirt from 5/2011. For the top I did (as usual) not fully follow the pattern directions. I decided to line the cups with flannel (upcycling from a flannel baby towel) to create more support, left out the button placket and I put in breast darts instead of putting elastic at the top seam as well. The breast darts were a first. I thought home wear would be perfect to practice with and I was right, I need practice. I used a meter of Eline Pellinkhof fabric that I bought myself last year just because it was so pretty (I bought the whole blue line). A meter was just enough (or just not, I had to make an extra seam in the back to ensure enough fabric).
I totally owned the pattern last year and it is clearly for me so I will also link this post up to sew your pattern stash. Besides sew alongs I love being efficient.
I love to hear what you think of my creations. Feel free to leave a comment in the language you prefer (although Google translate might have to assist me if you choose something different than English, German, Dutch or Hungarian).
