The PJ Pants are done and Kevin has them on now! YEAH! Another successful pair. This is Butterick 5153 again.
Since that’s done, I’ve decided that I’m going to make my sister a bikini next. I had made her one before from this pattern, Kwik Sew 4003:
She really liked it, so she’s getting another one. The full PR review is here: http://sewing.patternreview.com/review/pattern/90545
This time, I did some serious slashing and spreading on the cup piece.
She said she feels like a lingerie model in the last one. With this style, you can wear the cup spread apart for more coverage, or not…as you want. I hope this works for her because I just took a guess as to how much to add.
For the bottom of the bikini, I’ll use Kwik Sew 3238. This is my favorite bikini bottom for the both of us and I can’t even guess how many times I’ve made it. It’s nice to have patterns ready to go that I know will work.
Now, I’m currently waiting on her color selection…I sent these options to her earlier via text, but haven’t heard back yet. I think the stripe one would look really cute on her, but we’ll see what she says.
In other sewing news, I’ve recently enrolled in the Craftsy class, Sew Better, Sew Faster with Janet Pray from Islander Patterns. I do like taking Craftsy classes. I think my next project may be the jacket from the class. I just need to decide on the fabric I want to use!
