Finally a decent sports bra

I'm happy to say I finally have a decent sports bra. The pattern called for 3/8 elastic which I did on the first one and it was too much so I used 1/4 inch on this one and used 2 inch elastic in the band so that it would fit snug. I'll make several more of these but you'll never see a picture, that would be far worse than seeing me in my pj's lol. Now I can move on to some serious sewing this weekend. I guess I'll face my fears and tackle the gray jacket.






















I've had this fabric forever, at least 12-14 years and I think I've had the shorts that long, you can see how faded they are, and even thought the flowered monstrosities are very horrible they're kinda like the not-so-cute guy you use to date because he never let you down, the waistband doesn't roll and the legs stay put while exercising so they're keepers but never to be seen in public, again kinda like the not-so-cute guy, good for a movie but never a social event.

I'm almost finished with my first knit sweater, I have to finish the back and sleeves so hopefully it will be done soon, so far so good.

It's good to celebrate the little things in life, that way you're ready for the really big stuff.

I'm happy to say that my allergies seem to be under control so I am hoping for a nice stress free weekend full of sewing.

I love that print. Send the set to me. I'll pose with it on and then we can send it to America's Funniest videos!
