I think this is one of my favorite Ottobre makes in a while. In an effort to help Sara branch out from wearing a black turtleneck and jeans every single day (she has more than one black turtleneck), I made her a tunic and leggings last week. So now I've made her another tunic, this one more to her liking because it has black.
The skirt is pleated in both the back and front, and Sara was pleased to find there are inseam pockets. Very cozy!
It was kind of interesting to do the v-neck with a fairly wide piece of ribbing. It works the same as with narrower binding, but it's, uh, wider, haha.
The black and gray stripe is a soft jersey from Girl Charlee.
And in an effort to get rid of some of the 1 yard pieces of flannel clogging my cupboard, I cranked out some winter jammies. You can't make much with 1 yard of 44" inch fabric, unless you're a serious crafter (I'm not, apparently.) Yeah, I made only 4 sets. The fifth kid didn't complain, so it's all good.
Above, they're pretending to be tired.
Then, I told them to "make a muscle". I think Alex misheard me and thought I said, "Do yoga."
