I scrapped the red knit tank and cardi. I knew that the fabric was sheer but this was really sheer and I did not have enough fabric to cut at least a double front piece. Not only that but I really hated the fabric after handling and sewing just a little bit. I will make a red tank and cardi as I just ordered a red fabric from Cali Fabrics today.
While waiting for this fabric to arrive, I switched gears and decided to use the recently purchased fabric from Cali, the white with black stripes and floral print rayon knit. This morning I washed this fabric along with three other off white or cream knit fabrics.
I plan to sew Jalie 3245 using the stripe/floral print as the body and solid color for the sleeves. I have traced the pattern pieces and the pattern is ready for pin fitting. The inspiration for this was of course from Pinterest. Here are a few I liked
Tomorrow will not be a sewing day however. I have planned for a couple of weeks now on redecorating the master bathroom which is really mine; my husband has the hallway bathroom-this works best for us. I ordered some new beauty organizers and plan to change the colors used for the bath mats and curtains. The room needs a real spring cleaning or perhaps I should call it a summer cleaning! Will see how long this takes, so may get the fabric cut out in the afternoon.
