Summer sewing interruption:
I took part in the Colour Run. This is a 5K charity run/walk event. Don’t get this confused with fabric colour that bleeds when it’s washed. There was no way I was going to miss running with the family.The kids had a ball. Having the opportunity to get messy with the colour stations along the way and being given colour dust to get more messy at the end was such fun.

Ever since Melissa put out her XYT top and PB jam leggings, and the fact lots of people have getting fit as a New Year’s resolution, I’ve been wanting to make the XYT top again with some stash exercise fabric. Any excuse to make another XYT top and the Jalie skort below.
And I finally got to add the gripper elastic to the legging hem, gifted to me by Sarah.
I did a sway back adjustment on the centre back seam of the skirt and the leggings but cut the skirt pieces on the fold.
My first blue version felt short so I added the 5 cm on the hem of this new version. This first version needed gripper elastic on the legging hems so I’ve now added the elastic to it.
