Completed: Bimaa Sweater & Sunki Leggings (KCW Day One)

In an effort to keep from losing my mind (and still having time to sew) this week, I'll keep the posts brief -- just pictures and stats.

Patterns: Bimaa Sweater pattern from EmmylouBeeDoo (I won a giveaway from Ajaire!) and the Sunki Leggings (my second pair, which is identical to the first.)
Fabric: Purple interlock from my stash, the cowl neck is from a dissected maxi dress that was Amanda's (or her friend's?). The dress skirt was cut on the bias, so there wasn't too much extra. The jeans fabric is also from my stash -- leftover from a failed pair of Clovers.
Size: 2t on the Bimaa with no adjustments. It was a perfect fit. The sleeves and body are a tad long, which I prefer. It's designed to be a snug fit. Eliza is on the small end, so I'd size up if my girl was average-sized or at the bigger end of the size spectrum. I cut a 4/5 in the Sunki leggings and used a smaller seam allowance this time to give her even more wiggle room.
Modifications: None.
Thoughts: Man, I really like this Bimaa pattern. The Internets have been telling us it's adorable and showing us all their precious versions. There's a hooded version that I'd like to try for the boys. A great knit shirt pattern is like fried pickles and ranch dip -- pretty perfect. (See Renfrew, Flashback Skinny Tee, etc.)


  1. Such a cute sweater! I really like it!

  2. Lovely outfit Michelle :) I love your Bimaa :) The colours are perfect and suit your little princess so well :) The leggins look nice and comfy :) That's what we really want in kids clothes, right?

    1. Thanks! Exactly, Jenya. Easy on, easy off and comfortable while she's wearing it -- those are the key points! :)
