Simplicity 8834 Tank Top


This is a simple tank I keep making over and over. I finally took the darts out of the pattern. (I’ll link to the tutorial I used in my next post.)

The fabric is very sheer (probably a rayon and polyester mix) so I sewed a full lining rather than just the facing. TheĀ  layers move nicely and although the hem is unintentionally stiff (I used stitch witchery), it creates an interesting effect.



Baby Jumper


I made a jumper for Aubrey. I had sewn the straps as one, but she doesn’t like to put things over her head. So, I had to re-do them with Velcro. The bust area is lined. She’s growing fast; I hope it fits by the time it reaches her in the mail!
