Friendly to nature

Friendly to nature, originally uploaded by fmirela.

Eco friendly fabrics from JoAnns! The best part about that is I can use coupons for 50% or 40% off, so the price is way better then online.
The bamboo knit top is based on one of my favorite patterns from Burda. It is out of Burda WOF Magazine issue 10/1998. The cotton-bamboo poplin pants are based on Model no. 125 from Burda WOF 06/2008. I really am not a fan of these pants. High waist line and very large legs with that pleat in front, will not sew it again…

I have searched forever for some simple buttons to use and after looking at a few priced over 5$ I have finally found these geometric wood buttons for .50c :) they go with the eco friendly.

Inside

Finished the insides with a simple satin ribbon with a honey comb stitch. It will keep the raw edge from fraying and it adds some appeal without being bulky.

Yoga Pants

6 Seams and 2 hems with a coverstitch or twin needle and you are on your way to the gym!

The Yoga pants are ready and I couldn’t be more happy with the pattern! Burda 11/2007

I cut out a size 40 (which apparently I fit under if I take my measurements). Practically it is too large for me, so I had to take in the pants at the waist quit a little bit. Otherwise, great pattern, nice boot cut shape.

The waist band is wide and is meant to be fold over. This makes a great comfortable pant, with no constrictive elastic band, very easy to sew!

I totally recommend this pattern and will definitely sew it again!

I’m thinking of learning Adobe Illustrator and try to create my own line of patterns for knitting and/or crochet. I need to try experimenting with drawing quality schema’s to represent the patterns as sometimes they are easier to follow then the written descriptions. I’ve searched online forever and ever to find a cool modern software especially for this but all pattern oriented softs out there seem so out of fashion and poorly made. I guess Illustrator would be a more flexible tool, only I have to start watching all those Youtube tutorials first :)

This was a very quick crochet indeed, one could finish it in a day or a weekend.
I really enjoyed crocheting this, especially because of the speed, you get to see the airy fabric forming in no time.

While making this everyone laughed at my huge orange knitting needle and asked what is the purpose of such a lacy transparent item.

My aim was to create a sexier version of a vest, something that suggests a corset style, with a baby doll bottom, close fitted waist. A narrow ribbon passes through a row of double crochet stitches, under the bust to emphasize the empire waist.

The shirt and pants I sewed a long long time ago from La Mia Boutique magazine and I plan on reusing those patterns someday.
