top - nettie
skirt - flea market
'silver screen stars' leggings - self made
meet my first nettie!
isn't she sweet?..
made her few weeks ago
she was a top secret project
as i was pattern tester for fabulous lady heather lou
mastermind behind this pattern
never really thought of myself as bodysuit kind of gal
but, once again, i was proven wrong
so expect to see at least dozen more netties coming from me
my inspiration for this nettie:
flashdance meets ballerina sort of bodysuit
to be worn as a workout outfit
(and help me feel a little bit girly
while doing ton of push ups and punches)
so my version is high neck
and (really) low back, with short sleeves
(but nettie has many other options for you to choose from
including a very sexy dress variation!)
i cut the size 6, graded to 8 at the hips
and, for once, followed the instructions..
being a tester, i kind of had to..
they are beautifully written and well illustrated
and nettie pattern is pretty much idiot proof
(believe me.. for this version i used 2-way stretch
instead of 4-way, that pattern calls for
and my nettie still fits real well!
may be a bit too tight for sit ups
but i upgraded her to regular wear
and she looks fabulous with skirts..
the only downside is that, since i planned to wear it as workout clothes
i skipped the snaps crotch closure
so it's not beer-friendly)
are you sewing any netties?
