I had a substantial piece of baby pink two-way stretch knit that I bought because it was really cheap and it’s quite hard to find the two-way stretch. I dyed it blue, and made a Nettie bodysuit from Closet Case Files.
I won’t go on too much about this bodysuit, as I’ve already blogged my red leopard Nettie and a grey one. I am wearing this one for Me-Made-May, and it’s the perfect weather to wear it – wet and cool.
There is something very comforting about a bodysuit. They seem to keep me warmer than a regular t-shirt, and they are fabulous as layering pieces.
Just to show a contrast in weather, here are some photos of Mark last weekend wearing new jeans. He is also a candidate for a MMM entry as he is wearing jeans, shirt (now very old) and socks all made by me – we won’t discuss the hat!
The pattern is Kwik Sew 3504, a pattern I’ve made many times, so you would think I’d get the length right, wouldn’t you? These are a bit long, but I made them in absentia and this was the first time that Mark had tried them on. He wasn’t too bothered, and they might look better with shoes rather than runners, although I will revisit the hem at some point in the near future.
In a nutshell: Nettie bodysuit made with two-way stretch knit from Knitwit. Worn here with Ultimate Trousers, and Tammer Shrug, pattern and wool from Dairing, Melbourne, necklaces are made by me, but sadly the belt is not.
Mark’s jeans are Kwik Sew 3504, black stretch denim is from E M Greenfield, Sydney.
