Spring Mini Capsule Update 2

I had a friend in town so sewing was not super viable this weekend… but I still managed to get two things done and a third on Tuesday. So we’re up to 2/3 done of the Spring Mini Capsule (Original post, Update 1)!

There’s a bit of a change in my capsule, due mainly to time restraints.

I ditched the SOS Knit Pants and Mama Isabel to add in a pole outfit. SOS was dropped because of time restraints: I only have so much of the fabric, and they were the fiddliest pattern I had on there. I am still going to be making them without a doubt, but just not by April 10th. Mama Isabel had to be dropped because I bought the perfect fabric for it and it won’t be arriving until this weekend and that’s not a guarantee.

But anyhoo, on to the completed patterns!

Peg Legs (long)

  • PatternPeg Legs by Patterns for Pirates
  • Fabric: Blue DBP from Pretty Posh Prints
  • Size: Large
  • Modifications:
    • Added a gusset
    • Increased the rise
    • Shortened the band
    • Did a faux-band on the ankles. Any hemming I did on my test fabric looked god awful, but I did a cool hem with the serger. That I totally forgot to take detailed pictures of. (I just tried youtubing it and it’s like a blind hem, but not blind. If that makes ANY sense. Yup!)

    

    

Peg Legs (short)

  • PatternPeg Legs by Patterns for Pirates
  • Fabric: random swim fabric from FabricLand
  • Size: Large
  • Modifications:
    • Added a gusset
    • Shortened the band
    • Used hem tape and zigzag to hem.

Siren Swim Top

  • PatternSiren Swim Top by Patterns for Pirates
  • Fabric: random swim fabric from FabricLand
  • Size: Large, 4″
  • Modifications:
    • None? Amazingly?
    • The lining fabric and the main fabric were the same so that was a bit confusing. I’ll definitely do a contrast lining in the future.

I need to up the bust inches, to really make sure it stays put. I did wear the top to pole last night, and it passed the test of Advanced Inversions. I can’t wait to make more of this pattern. Maybe with some flounce? 😀

Only three items to go!
