Niet storen / Do not disturb

Not completely happy with it, but, considering the time and effort put into making this night-shirt, it is good enough to sleep in and it looks cute nonetheless. ;-)
Unfortunately, I did not have enough fabric to finish the neckline properly. For this reason it is also shorter than the original dress pattern. I altered the hem: center front and back are a little bit longer than the sides.

Pattern: Flounce Dress (Burda 02/2013), without flounce (as I do not like it).
Fabric: Jersey

Dansen met een rokje / Dancing with a skirt

I really love how this dance leotard turned out (In real life it looks much better than on the pictures). I am not sure if the skirt will work during Acro Rock n Roll training, but I will know soon. I just had to make/ try one. :-)
What I love most about the pattern (Jalie 2104) are the raglan sleeves. I might adjust the neckline next time, as it is quite wide and rather low at the back right now. After a training session I will know if it stays in place nicely and is not too low at the back.
The skirt is not hemmed (yet), as my sewing machine broke down, and I am not sure if I will do it in the future. Luckily lycra doesn’t fringe.
