Sunki - a pocket dress and leggings
It had been a while since I had sewn any clothes for S and I was itching to get back to my sewing room after a little break over the holidays. I had purchased this pattern in December by Figgy's Patterns called Sunki. I was immediately drawn to it's lines, the pockets and the sleeves. Of course I also really love the Ikat fabric it was made in. How gorgeous is that fabric? That it included a pattern for leggings too was a nice touch.
This was my first time sewing from Figgy's Patterns and I really give it good marks because the instructions were very clear and easy to follow and the design was great. I made the size 4/5.
My goal was to use fabric I had in my stash which I sort of worried about because I wanted it to be a pattern and not a quilting cotton. When I laid out my pattern pieces on this Liberty of London cord I couldn't believe I had enough. You may remember I used the fabric before when I made this dress. I was happy to use it again and also thrilled that I found a knit fabric for the leggings that went with it because the only other knit I had enough of was pink.
Now I have my eye on the Ofelia pattern and the Bubble skirt in the Figgy's line.
A label is included with the pattern which I placed on the leggings for her.
