More of Jalie 2564... I was so excited about using small pieces of left-over fabric and making some useful (and pretty) knickers, that I went through my scrap box and found suitable pieces to make more..
First up red and racy...
This fabric is left-over from my Jalie criss-cross top. It is a poly/rayon/spandex blend and one of the nicest, softest hard wearing fabrics I have used. I used a stretch lace for the waist elastic and regular pantie lace elastic for the leg holes.
The other pair from the scrap basket are my black sensibles...
This time a block cotton interlock with foe (fold over elastic) at the openings.
As it is highly unlikely that I will model these undies for a photo, I should just let you know that when worn, they don't sit quite so high legged as they look when laid out flat on the table. They look more like the ones modeled by the sweet girl on the cover of the Jalie pattern.
Today I have cut and made a top from another piece of silk jersey (don't you love holidays!). I am not feeling the love for it but hope after hanging in the wardrobe over night, I may love it more when I get some photos tomorrow.
However to continue in the theme of waste not, want not, I used the left-over piece to make
knickers, uh not this time... a bit too much fabric for them, so I thought I would make a cowl...
Next post I hope to show you my new tangerine silk jersey top... ciao!
