Blogtober - Day 8 - New ClothesToday has been very productive. For me, that is - nothing happened on the building front. They get a long weekend as they're waiting on more materials to arrive.
I spent the day holed up in my office keeping the sewing machines company.
BigMiss is quite pleased with it.
I also made these easy bike-pants.

I've been meaning to make some for the girls to wear under their school uniform for ages (little girls have no modesty when playing - or even just tying shoe laces!) I wasn't sure how the pattern was designed to fit, so only made one to see and choose what sizes to make each of them. This one fit MiddleMiss perfectly - without even having to put elastic in the top. (I'll see how it goes with wear as to whether I put any in.) I have to make a bigger size for BigMiss still.
Then LittleMiss felt she was missing out, so I spent the rest of the day cutting out and sewing up this top.
Excuse the still-half-asleep look
I'm not too sure if I really like it though. It seems too wide. It might end up going to cousin J for a birthday present in a couple of months time.
And yesterday I finally got around to blocking the top I finished knitting for BigMiss.
She had great fun posing for me!
I'm halfway through writing up the pattern for it, and already started on the prototype for the DK/8ply version.
