This Nettie is made with local fabric from that stretch Mecca (well, one of them anyway), Spandex House. I bought it the same time as my Lupita Blue dress fabric and this leopard print and this groovy one here. I’ve got a good track record with that haul!
I used the mid length sleeve option (says Captain Obvious) and the scoop front and mid back. This, my second Nettie, is made up in a straight size 8.
Much better fit. No sheer effect across the bust. Though, this fabric is quite substantial (I’m seriously thinking of making another one with short sleeves and some leggings out of it) while still providing lots of stretch. That Spandex House is an amazing place.
We’ve already seen Nettie with my favorite skirt and dark denim jeans.
She also friendly with 1960s style shorts.
I’m not sure I have the stones to rock two such fitted pieces, together, out in the wide world….Maybe with a chic, drape-y caftan over it? We’ll see.
OOOOH, maybe a sleeveless Victoria like Heather’s!!
I can’t wait until you see all of my mixes and matches using the Sewing Indie designers’ patterns!
I’ll show you some in tomorrow’s post!
