My wardrobe has a very limited color palette and periodically I attempt to alter this, which is why I had this acid green rayon lycra jersey in my stash. It's from Emmaonesock as usual. Her knits are the best quality and this 11oz jersey is no exception. I really prefer rayon knits to the cottons available because those just don't feel as good. It's wonderful against the skin; like wearing cashmere but far cheaper! This is Burda 124 7/07 which I've made it before; it's the only twist top I've made that isn't too low and exposed. The review is here. It's a plus sized pattern that is cut rather small. If I remember correctly, I didn't actually have to narrow the shoulders! It's also very curvy and snug fitting in the middle, a part I don't like to showcase. I had to make a small fba for this and I uncurved the middle a bit and then curved it back again in a different spot. In other words, I needed to play around with the side seams to get a fit I like.
Next up is cleaning my sewing room and studio. Cannot work in this mess! I have pattern pieces and rolls of drawings that need to be filed. The floor isn't too bad because I do sweep it, but it needs a good dusting and vacuuming too. Sigh. I hate to clean.
What am I going to sew next? Yoga clothes. I have 14oz rayon jersey for the pants and some hot pink rayon jersey, I do not remember what possessed me to buy it, because pink is so not my color, for a top. I'm going to adapt my razer pant for the bottoms and Simplicity 4076 for the top, which was altered several years ago and I never made the mock wrap with gathers which should work well with short sleeves. I looked through 5 years of BWOF for yoga patterns, and there are several, but in the end I really didn't want to trace and alter another top when this one would work fine.
Have a great weekend
