Well, I decided to make one more quick outfit before my children were on Christmas vacation. Here is a cowl-neck t-shirt I made using Ottobre's 301 Creative Design pattern. I found a cowl-neck tutorial here by "Off the Cuff Sewing Style." Oh my gosh...this was so easy to do! I scooped out the neck of the t-shirt pattern. I cut the cowl neck 18" (the neckline measurement) x 8" (the depth of the collar) using my rotary cutter.
I can't remember where I bought this knit because it was a while ago. No one really cared for the color. However, when I was making the camel-colored funky pant by Crafty Mamas, I then realized this knit would be a perfect match!
This is my last sewing project for a week or so. Partly because of Christmas, more because it is forced upon me--my washing machine broke today! I am unable to prewash my fabrics.
Sadly, my attempt at making Ottobre's Jolie dress jumper didn't work well for me. I got stuck after putting in the invisible zipper. The next step and the following step just didn't compute. I tried anyway and ended up with a big frustrating mess. So, if anyone is successful at making it, please share with me how to proceed after the zipper. It was turning out so nice. I should have made it in a muslin first...sigh. So, this outfit was born out of my failed attempt at the dress jumper. I had to make something to restore my level of confidence. hahaha
