Black Ginger Jeans and Alexa/Monroe Mash Up
Some patterns in my collection have been made so many times that they really don't warrant a blog post and I often wonder why I write about repeats but I do like to keep a catalogue of what I make so lets make this all about that lovely blossom then shall we!
The fabric my replacements were made of is a lovely denim that I think was part of my Italian denim purchase when I visited Tessuti Fabrics in Sydney last year. It has a slight coating and a small amount of stretch. My pattern has been adjusted to include all my regular adjustments; adjusted back yoke to take into account my sway back and a knock knee adjustment. Like my previous pairs, the button and rivets were sourced from Aliexpress.
While I am playing catch up with repeats, I made one more merino top which was worn regularly over the cooler months. This one was from lovely striped merino from The Fabric Store. I used Tessuti Alexa for the pattern and adapted the neckline to add Tessuti Monroe turtleneck. This mash up has been somewhat of a tnt for me this past winter. The top was mostly constructed on the overlocker with the hems finished on my coverstitch.
