Buses

I don't post for over a month, then loads of posts turn up at once.  Yep, that's the way it is right now.  I have been knitting and sewing up a storm, but not got round to taking the photos.  Well now I have, so would you like to see what I've made?

Firstly, some Tina Givens love :)

I made another Violet tunic and some Oprah jeans.  Please excuse the glasses but it was very sunny outside and I was determined to take some photos!!




I used some coral linen that I also made a tunic from last year, and some leftover grey linen from even longer ago . . . . . . . The grey frills are bias cut again, and the bottom, attached, gathered, coral piece is separate from the rest of the side panels.  The designer has you cut the the side panels and the centre bottom piece all in one, but I thought that would cause problems gathering, and I like how it looks if is attached.

The Oprah's are made from a light(ish)weight black denim with a bit of stretch.  The only difference between these and the previous ones I made is that I made the legs slightly wider at the bottom, other than that - they are as per the pattern.

I took a few close ups as well . . . . .


This pattern does have an exaggerated balloon shape around the hips which suits me as I am rather cylindrical.



You can see the vertical seam (above) where I attached the coral frill as a separate piece to the centre panel.


And, of course, a patch on the back with a cute heart.  Love it!

How about you?  Do you stall when it comes to taking photos?  Any top tips?!
