It’s been a little crazy lately. In between pattern testing and working on our own projects, Rachel and I are trying to get some things sewn for ourselves.
The last time I sewed for myself was at Christmas and to say it was a disaster would be an understatement. When I was a young mother I sewed all my own clothes. There is no reason why this should be so difficult. After much encouragement from Rachel, I decided to give it another go.
We have been excited about the release of the Just Add Jeans Patterns so I decided that I would jump in and try the Parisian. The Just Add Jeans collection is no longer available, but you can buy the patterns separately. The Parisian is a Go to Pattern available in her shop.
I love the collar and the three quarter sleeve. The band at the bottom is relaxed but gives it just enough stability to cling just above the hip line.
Of course I fell in love with the stripe, so there were stripes to match as well.
This project was a WIN! I love the fit, the stripes match well. Hopefully this will be the encouragement I need to sew a few more things for myself. I have just finished a muslin for the Washi Dress and I am hoping that the real thing goes as well. After all why should the kids get all the good stuff?
