first up this week for KCWC, a tutorial by the woman herself, meg “elsie marley” spaeth! i bookmarked her knot shorts tutorial almost exactly a year ago during grosgrain’s free pattern month, and i wanted to make it SO BADLY! but at the time i didn’t feel i had the sewing prowess to create my own pattern. after my stint in PR&P, i knew i could handle it.
the problem was, my sewing mojo was WAY off last night. i made just about every mistake possible, sewed the inseams wrong, tried to fully line them but didn’t think far enough ahead and had to change them to facings, etc. even though i stumbled at every turn, they still came together super quickly and turned out pretty darn cute! oh and she likes them. they’re good for practicing her new skill – headstands. 🙂
fabric is chambray from joann and pink voile from this shirt, almost a copy of the fabrics meg used. i highly doubt our daughters will run into each other on the street, so i think it’s acceptable.
see you tomorrow for day 2! woot!
