Robots in the Rain
DD#2 has been spending some of her free summer days sewing.
On a trip to Purl Patchwork last week she picked up a yard of adorable robot fabric. (Between you & me it was also the same day I let her take the subway alone for the first time. It was a route she knows well - E train; 42nd Street to Spring Street. Hey, Purl was about to close. If I'd gone all the way uptown to get her we wouldn't have made it.)
She made her own bias binding using one of these nifty gadgets that we got at Purl last winter. If you sew, I highly recommend one. So much fun - so much potential & making bias tape is such a pain in the arse otherwise.
Robot Shorts - By DD#2
Fabric: Kokka Fabrics Robot Line, colorway Red HA3320-24B purchased from Purl Patchwork
Pattern: New Look #6785
Mods: The pattern doesn't have a shorts view. She shortened the pants to get the look she was after. She added the bias tape. The pattern calls for a folded edge with twill tape on the inside. She also put the zipper in the back. In my experience side zips along a curved hip edge tend to ruin the line of the garment.
Does modeling finished objects in a swimming pool & with umbrellas count as "Water" for Project Spectrum?
