My sister and I take after different sides of the family, and we’ve never really looked much alike… but now that Anne’s new glasses turn out to be so similar to mine, don’t you think we finally look like sisters?
We’re fricking adorable, that’s what we are! 😛
Anne admired my drape drape tee knockoff (that I’m wearing in these pics) and asked for one of here own, so on Saturday I sent her a bunch of pics from the fabric store, and she choose two knits. By time she came to visit the next day I had both sewn up! (I love you, serger and coverstitch.)
First up is a drapey tee just like mine. Anne’s teal version is from a light-weight rayon blend knit. Doesn’t it look pretty on her?
The second shirt is a Renfrew made up in a beefy cotton spandex knit. I did do a cheater FBA on this one. I was a little worried when I tried this one on to check fit – we are very similar measurements but quite different proportions, somehow, and it just looked dumpy on me. On Anne though, I think it’s got a nice bit of Parisian chic!
Finally, something that doesn’t quite deserve a post of its own… yet another pair of Ginger jeans! These are a lovely thick stretchy twill I bought in Toronto this winter… but look at the back of my calves, and you’ll clearly see I didn’t buy enough! Silly me. Mental note: 2m does not make me proper pants. A few of my Gingers have been annoying me by bagging out, so I made these closely fit so that even when saggy they won’t be clown pants. End result: kinda snug! Isn’t that always the way?
It’s always so fun to sew for Anne, my mom, and Jamie (sorry, Dad, that I’ve never made you anything!) because they appreciate the work and the effort, and what I make actually gets worn. So Anne, thanks for buying the fabric and taking some pics with me! Hope you enjoy the shirts, and I swear, those jeans will get made someday soon!
