Ottobre Outfit

This little outfit is from the Ottobre 3/2009 collection. I found both the knits at Hobby Lobby. The jacket is a velour knit and is so so soft. This project was the first I made using my serger, it went sooo fast. And I am loving the knits on the serger. The leggings took only a minute to construct. I do love my sewing machine, but it has always struggled with knits, even with proper needle and all it still skips stitches and gives me fits. And while the serger in no way takes the place of the sewing machine, it really compliments it. This out fit is 80cm, and should fit Sophie through the winter.

Yes, I am having serger envy. I quit sewing with knits a while back, because my machine had issues as well. Everything stretched in all the wrong ways, and nothing looked right.

That outfit is lovely.

Love the outfit, and can't wait to see Sophie model it! She will look so cute with her blonde hair against the black and white.! Love mom
