Another two patterns ready for testing!
I finally used the starry french terry that I've been obsessing about and it's a dream. I wish I'd gotten more, it's so nice and thick and has fabulous stretch recovery.
These leggings don't have cuffs or button cuffs at the ankles like the others I've made because I didn't want to break up the star print. But the big foldover yoga band that I used for the last pair when the sewing machine ate the fabric remains, I really like that it offers extra coverage in the back and it means she'll be able to wear them forever. As you can see in the picture above, when unfolded it goes way up and over the buddha belly.
I've been thinking about more variations to include with the cowl neck top and I've tested three different neck heights: cowl (very tall), turtleneck (to be folded down) and mock neck (the height of a turtleneck but unfolded). This royal blue one is a mock neck and has a kangaroo pocket.
Maybe possibly I'm going to have a boat neck height too (short but stand up) but I still have to test if it would be too wide a neck for little shoulders. Am I travelling down my typical road to overkill or should I just leave well enough alone?
