I use paper lunch wrap to trace my patterns as it's cheap and there's lots of it.
As soon as I dropped Eloise off at kindy today, I ran to my sewing room to get stuck in (those 2 1/2 hours go ridiculously quickly!). I had started a merino top on Friday so I got that finished (with only a small amount of swearing). The merino tears REALLY easily and the leggings I made for E last week are already pilled so I'm pretty disappointed with the stuff but at least it will keep her warm.
When I was looking for more knit fabric to use for tops and tunics that I wanted to make, I found a tunic that I had cut out for Eloise last winter and never sewed. How bad is that? Of course it no longer fits her (it's a size 2) so I will be listing it in my Felt shop. I'll show you the finished tunic tomorrow when I've added the finishing touches. It's going to look way cuter than this, trust me!
The top was made using New Look 6639 and the tunic dress is from Butterick 3316. I love the latter pattern and must have made tops and dresses from it about 10 times. It says Quick and Easy on the front which is always a bonus for me! It's unfortunately out of print now but you might find it on Trade Me or Ebay if you are interested.
Pop along to the Elsie Marley Flickr group to see what the others who are playing have been making.
