Lekala 4119

My youngest daughter is in a “purple” phase now. Dark purple is the color she will go for. It used to be pink, then red. But now… 🙂 PURPLE.

Of course I had to make something for her also (while at the cabin). Her style seems to be changing. Last year she wanted everything BAGY. Now she leans more towards a “snugger fit”. This pattern was VERY EASY. The only thing I want to comment on, is the waistband. I find that Lekala tend to make the waistband a little on the “snug” side. There is a lot of “negative ease”, so be aware before you cut. If your fabric is very stretchy, that might be ok. Otherwise adjusting this might be good before cutting.lilla forran

.I had left over fabric after sewing the red gingham top for myself and decided to make a second top for “my girl” :-). My “red gingham” fabric is cotton. The stretch is less than the ITY jersey. I added a little to the width of the waistband. It still has a little “negative ease”, but not much. I am happy with the result.
