Time is speeding by around here, so anything sewn has to be quick, quick, quick. I am also not a big Halloween person, but I saw this cute fabric and had to have it. It is a Riley Blake design that I purchased from Bessie Mary. I thought it was so cute, the little ghosts look so friendly. As I said before, I am not a huge "sew-for-Halloween" person, so whatever I made I wanted it to be versatile. I decided on a blouse she could wear with either a jumper as shown or over a pair of jeans. She can wear jeans now.:) I used an OOP Children's Corner pattern, "Meg", for the blouse.
The jumper is my current go-to, Children's Corner "Lucy" out of a Fabric Finders twill, also purchased from Bessie Mary.
I have to tell on myself. I tried really hard, to NOT pipe this jumper. I had the lining pinned to the twill and was ready to sew. I couldn't do it. I had to pipe it. In the interest of time, I did concede to whip stitch piping instead of making piping. I wanted this done TODAY! Part of my problem is, I can't stand seeing the lining peek out. Piping really guards against that. I even shorten the lining on the jumper by 1/4" to pull the twill to the inside so you won't see the lining at the hem. My house may be a wreck, but by jingy you aren't going to see my linings!
I love this ghost print a lot but its life expectancy is short so I have another blouse from a floral remnant almost finished. That will take this cute little jumper through Thanksgiving. I wonder if there is any orange Christmas fabric anywhere? Don't tell me if you find it. There are way too many projects on the cutting table as it is.
