I think the weather forecast for the next few days says it all. Thankfully it will only last a couple more days before it cools down to the mid 30’s. The overnight temperatures really sap my energy. It is a good excuse to stay inside during the afternoons, put the fan on and sew; preferably small lacy things.
Project A – Checkerboard Print Lycra with charcoal trim
Bra is from Merckwaerdigh Mix30, shorts are self drafted. Will probably make these so they can double as swimwear.
Project B – Ivory and gold
long-line strapless bra modified from Merckwaerdigh Strap4. Self drafted pants. Love the trim for this one
Project C – Army green and black
The lycra is reversible with a lighter shade on the reverse, which unfortunately didn’t photograph well. The pattern for the bra will be self-drafted and using Merckwaerdigh SV32 for the bottoms to echo the tucks and lace accents
Project D – Denim look lycra
Another fabric which doesn’t photograph well. Currently tossing up between a very plain t-shirt bra style set and one with lace bits. I’ve got some nice strapping and FOE in navy with a silver accents that works well with this fabric, so I may go with option 2 over option 3.
