The next pattern in the list is actually three pieces that people will not necessarily wear together, but that will be a staple pattern for costumes of all kinds and for those of you who like quick projects: 3027 - Dancewear
The pattern includes the following:
- Wrap halter top (also shown in the yoga pants pictures) - This top looks great on its own, but is also very cute as a swimsuit cover-up or over a cami. This is why I plan to wear (in black) for my "official" pregnancy pictures (with all-black yoga pants). It will be much better than the plain tube top they had at the studio when I went for my first pregnancy!
- Pull-on spiral skirt (6 gores) - The perfect pattern to get rid of those tiny knit pieces in your stash that are just too pretty to throw away, but to small to make anything else...
- Tights (footed or over-the-boot) - For Halloween, Roller Derby, Figure Skating... So much fun to have one-of-a-kind tights/hosiery.
We did have fun with the skirt pattern and some remnants from our fabric room that reminded me of the Queen of Hearts:
We paired the skirt with the ballet leotard, used clear elastic for both straps and made little ruffled decorations using chiffon strips that we sewed on the cover stitch and then over stretch elastic to create stretch trimming. We used it for one strap and put small pieces on the skirt hem. The leotard's peplum hides the skirt's yoke and keeps the skirt from riding up (because it does not have attached briefs).
I won't keep you waiting any longer... I will type the next post right away :)
