Spring! And KCW Day 1&2


Today it's 19°C! No Coat Weather. I do believe it's spring here finally! Maybe those dirty piles of snow will take the hint soon.

I had the opportunity to test a pattern for Heidi & Finn, the Ballon Top - just finished today. Abigail fell in love immediately and we had to go for a walk in it right away.

I found this butter soft and drapey jersey and some pretty fairly stretchy dot lace at Fabricland. So thankful for my walking foot for such a thin knit. Most of the construction was done on the serger, just the hemming and gathering on the sewing machine. The patterns has some great tips for rolled hems and finished seams on a sheer fabric. The fit is spot on!
