I’ve been busy! Making costumes for The Seagull, and hunting down some to borrow from neighboring theaters. Writing for a few other websites, dealing with all my everyday mom stuff, house hunting with my husband AND trying to perfect the fit of my shawl collar wrap which will be debuting as the Ojai wrap, my first PDF pattern, on April 1st. Phew! I haven’t even been able to get the gym …. Hey, at my age, a week of workouts missed, is like a month when you’re in your twenties!
I was lucky enough to have my lovely daughter available today to try on the Ojai wrap and pose for a few photos. We met my dad and my stepmom for coffee and some sweets at our favorite cafe. Good thing my dad brought his camera because when I got mine out, I realized the batteries were dead…. how convenient. Of course I was happy to have Dad take the photos!I’ve slimmed the fit down from my original style below, which I felt was too boxy.. But, I WILL be changing those sleeves which just don’t look right…. they are too wide! lol
My slightly boxier fit.
I added a tab sleeve as an option. This wrap is sooo easy to make, especially with a serger. I plan on making a few more to throw on when running around and to wear over my workout clothes when I’m running errands. My mom wants one, too. I’m sizing it from XS 0/2 to XL which will be about a 14 /16.
I’ll be slowing down on my posting the next couple of weeks. I have a lot of work to do on The Seagull, have a When We Were Young post to write, a fun series where we make an outfit for our kids based on something we wore ourselves as children, hosted by my blog friend Suz from Sew Pony, a tutorial for The Sewing Rabitt, and I’ll be going to Seattle next week for my cousin’s wedding. See you soon!
