Thank you to everyone who commented on my La Sylphide dress – I haven’t had a chance to reply to anyone yet, but I’m really glad I’ve shown you the potential of the La Sylphide pattern, I hope some of you will give it a try! 🙂
Oh wait, I lie, I made TWO Ensis tees!
And Kat made one too!
We took these photos up Mt Victoria on a glorious Sunday morning. We played Ensis Twinsies and hiked up to the Truby King Garden to take photos for you.
Check out that view!
Check out the beautiful greenery!
Watch out for dinosaurs (or more likely Moa!)
There isn’t really a lot to say about the Ensis tee – it’s really easy to make. I whipped these two up in an afternoon production line style using only my 4-threads-of-awesomeness-overlocker.
Ok I did use my Elna to twin needle top stitch the hems – one day I’ll have a coverstitch machine!
So they’re quick AND you can also get an Ensis made out of a ridiculously small amount of fabric.
You can also have a lot of fun with fabric combinations!
How about some piping or lace at the joins?
And that’s it…kind of…except that I have a few more photos, the total count will be 23, a lot more than usual but you should know that these were culled from well over 300 😉
