So my goals are to sew up a Bimaa shirt (or two) and at least one pair of Skinny Jeans. I had printed and cut out my patterns on Sunday, so I was ready to start cutting fabric and sewing on Monday. I started with a Bimaa - the cowl neck version. I've seen so many awesome versions out there already and everyone raves about how quick and easy it is so I was pretty excited. They are not wrong! It turned out so great! I used a zebra thermal for the shirt and black knit with sparkly gold flecks for the cowl. The arms and waist are black ribbing. I should've pattern matched a little better at the seams - I centered a line of zebras down the middle instead. There are a few decapitated zebras and random appendages...oh well!
I was not able to get the best pictures since it was almost bedtime. The shirt took a little longer than it should have because my serger was not loving me. I had to keep threading and checking it and I have no idea why it was being so finicky. I finally gave up (though I was almost finished) and went for a run to get the kids, even though I already ran that day for exercise. I was just that stressed and angry with the machine. Running with the girls did the trick! I came home and fixed the thread one last time and it was smooth sailing. The pattern really is that straight forward and fun to sew!
I plan to sew another Bimaa in a fun cat print. Hopefully all with go well and I can get decent pics this week of the girls in them together!
