Slinky Success

I'm always surprised by what catches Olivia's eye at the fabric store. Fabrics I don't even see, perhaps because I've automatically ruled them out without a second thought. But she was so in love with this funky, slinky knit that I picked up a set of ballpoint needles and agreed to give it a try. And what a happy surprise--smooth, quick sewing. I didn't have to finish the inside seams because the knit doesn't seem inclined to unravel, and I used a zig-zag stitch for a simple rolled hem on the legs. The pattern is Simplicity 3553 (same one we used for our sewing day last year), and the doll pants are from Simplicity 7069.
