I have been busy trying out new patterns to make a few tops but so far no luck. I am starting to wonder if it is the patterns fault or mine. It might be easier to do some sit-ups and eat less chocolate rather than trying to find a pattern that suits my
fat tummy needs.
To cheer me (and you) up, I thought I’d show you a trilogy of tunics for a set of soon 3 sisters. I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to use some of the Susalabim Dschungel stripes – three stripy fabrics with changing main colour but same base.
Here we go:
pattern: Traegerkleid by Klimperklein, fabric: Dschungel Kombistreifen pink by Lillestoff, design Susalabim
So, the pink version for the 4 year old, as she is currently in that phase where any other colour would be an offence.
pattern: Raglankleid by Klimperklein, fabric: Dschungel Kombistreifen blau by Lillestoff, design Susalabim
The blue version for the 2 year old. Because she doesn’t care about colours yet.
pattern: Knopftunika by Klimperklein, fabric: Dschungel Kombistreifen orange by Lillestoff, design Susalabim
The orange one for the yet to be born, because this was the third colour left.
And just because they are so nice and cheerful, all three again
Oh, and I have been playing with the different stitches on my new machine.
In all three cases, there had been a machine-eats-fabric moment but in the end I made it. I still wonder what the problem was though.
I am rather pleased – three different tunics/patterns for three individual girls but still a lot in common. And still enough fabric left for some more mix and match. Possibly for a top for me?
