Whoo Hoo! I finished a garment in my #canadiancapsulechallenge @couturious. If you would like to read Part 1, it is right here! My plan is to add to this “casual” capsule in some new-to-me colours! I need to add one pair of pants, one tee and two cardigans or hoodies (haven’t decided yet!) 🙂
But my first garment to be sewn is a couple of pairs of black yoga pants to replace my worn ones in this photo.
I purchased this wonderful solid black Lycra Leggings Knit from Our Social Fabric, a marvelous non-profit fabric store which sells donated deadstock fabric, and I used a pattern, Kwik Sew K3660, I have been sewing for years!
Cutting out the fabric was easy enough … I cheated and had four layers on my table at once so that I would end up with the proper number of pattern pieces TWICE. (I’ll be making two pairs of yoga pants.)
Now just to be on the safe side, since I had to pull my serger, a Janome MyLock 334, out from under its dust cover, after a thorough cleaning, I tested the stitch. The result didn’t look too bad!
….. Easy peasy and I’m done …. and off for my walk!
What’s next in my #canadiancapsulechallenge? I’m not sure! But I do know I have one pair of pants, one tee and two cardigans or hoodies on my list. Stay tuned for the next blog post!
Thank you for reading and commenting!
Stash busting with this project? – 2 metres used for my black yoga pants, so I have 123.5 metres in the fabric stash still!
