cotton/lycra fun

recently i bought a bunch of cotton/lycra from i also got to visit kashi at metro textiles in the garment district--yay! i bought some c/lyrca from him, too. diana needed leggings, so i made them in many colors:

i used the ks pattern, which fits so well and sews up very quickly. plus, this type of project calls for my wonderful coverstitch machine. this machine is a gem! i am so grateful that i have it. it makes beautiful stitches and makes my projects look so professional. i think diana has enough leggings now :-).

i had leftovers, so i made some "unnerwear" for littlest one:

the white pair i made from a rescued gap tshirt. the flowers have rhinestones in the middle of them, which delights mk! these are also done from a ks pattern. gotta love ks!

i also did a simple little play outfit for mk, which she refuses to model:

Wow! What a way to start off your sewing year! I'm going to have to try that legging pattern - my Abby won't wear pants at all (because she says she's a princess!) so she needs something under her skirts in this freezing weather. Thanks for sharing your sewing!

Well now, you sure have been busy! Every thing looks great. Your kids are very lucky. Are the flowers embroidered on? The rhinestone in the middle is a great idea.
