After overcomming my sewing laziness, I now have to face my blogging laziness :)
Both projects are made in May as a present for a friend. But maybe I have to mention that the shirt was made last year. We just didn’t manage to take pictures of it. I often don’t know the exact measurements of people I sew presents for. (Because there is not much of a surprise left, when I ask for it) That is why I chose overcut shoulders and a waterfall neckline, that will always fit :) It is Top #110 from Burda 05/2012 . I also made her a matching scarf/belt/hairband.
We finally took the pictures when we went to a electro swing party together (on the last day of Me-Made-May)
This year I asked for one measurement and made her and her friend a running belt following this tutorial. It was my first time using foldover elastic (great stuff!) and reflective iron-on tape. I cut their first letter from the reflective tape. So the belt looks a bit like a super hero accessory. I think an “in action” picture will follow in about one year ;)
