Okay, okay. I know my Burda Challenge is late for September. I figured since it was late anyway, I might as well make a few things before I do that. I still haven’t settled on what I want to make for September. That’s pretty bad since I’ve had the magazine since mid-August. Aw well, fickle woman-mind. I’m allowed.
While I’m deciding, I had to make these cute Ottobre tights. They fit well, but not as well as Jalie. I’m wondering if they are still too big, I made the size 34, but I took another 1/4” off the inside seam when I was done. So that’s another 1/2” total I took off. The crotch curve also seems long. Although that would all make sense, this magazine is drafted for longer women than me. I still like the tights though. Maybe next pattern I’ll size down to a 32? My waist is several cm smaller and my hips are 1-2cm smaller than the 34. The overall length was long on these too. I cut off about 1.5” when I was done.
They are made out of a gifted wicking knit. Really nice stuff. I wore them running yesterday. Yes, I’m back to running. No hand numbness and very little back/neck pain. Man, I need to do some squats, perk up that butt a bit. Part of it is these tights. How do I fix this ladies?
I know I always appreciate the Butt Shot on blogs. (By the way, I know there is talk of "The Blog is Dead” and all that. I love your blogs, please don’t stop. Instagram is nice for insta-pics, but bad for details. I’ll keep reading yours and you keep reading mine, k?)
Oh, and have you seen this Jalie Hoodie Sew-A-Long?? My jacket is part way done. I’m loving it already!!
