Introducing the Around the House Collection:
Friday and Saturday were really casual for me. I didn’t go anywhere, I just worked. My clothing would’ve been much worse- big, baggy Walmart tee and sweats- if I wasn’t sharing on the internet, lol. I’m really one of those people.
Handmade Items: Jersey Tunic, Black Leggings
Ughh, I was having a major fat day.
Handmade Items: Graphic Tank, Velour Knit Pants
These pants were made from my knit pant block. I cropped them and used 1/4” elastic for the gathering. The elastic was contained in a casing that I used w/ the SA. The SA is only open for the casing, above the casing, it’s just serged together like you usually do w/ knits. You could also just use the SA serged together as a casing by itself. When I was sewing it, I thought I was going to need elastic casings on both sides of the SA, but as you can see, one side was plenty.
SA casing on the Inside:
The hem is also gathered into a small band at the bottom. Since I didn’t have ribbing, I used the wrong side of the fabric. It looks pretty close to ribbing to me.
Velour Tip: Make sure you cut w/ the pile going down. I didn’t realize this until AFTER I cut.
