Sew, Sometimes I Craft Without (#5) . . .
paper -- LOL! I also love using fabric and my beloved sewing machine and spent a bit of time sewing my very first Liberty Jane Clothing patterns: Skinny Jeans from their Jeans Bundle and Peplum top. These patterns are so beautifully designed and fabulously detailed that I LOVE them even more than I thought I would!
I used a silvery stretch 7 oz. denim fabric remnant from Joann's for my skinny jeans. This pattern has ALL the sweet details a pair of jeans should have, including front & back working pockets and top stitching everywhere. I used a twin needle and two coordinating threads on all the pockets as shown in a close-up of the back pockets below.For the Peplum top, I used another remnant piece and recycled zipper from an old wallet -- gotta love recycling! ;~) I just think this top is perfect because the fun detail-stitched pockets show below the peplum's gathers. The top is completely lined except for the peplum itself and goes together so easily following the pattern's excellent instructions. I love how the sweet little blue flowers in this fabric coordinate with this denim, but have another fabric I'm anxious to stitch up another peplum top with now too! Fabric is as addicting as all those pretty papers I can't resist -- hee! Check back or follow my blog, as I will be posting several more AG Doll outfits as soon as time permits stitching, photographing and posting -- thanks for visiting!
