Make Laundry Don’t do Laundry Tour

Welcome to my stop on the Make Laundry Don’t Do Laundry Tour! For this tour we were challenged to make something in the time it would take to do a load of laundry. Check out what I made with two patterns that you can get for FREE! Enter the link up and giveaways at the end of the post, and check out the other stops on the tour!
We were given the choice to do a “Fresh Sew” or “Go To Sew” I opted for the “Go To” and picked a couple of my favorite most sewn and worn pieces.
This is a great tee and tunic pattern that is super flattering on a lot of body types. It’s also a pattern that you can get completely free by joining the Love Notions Pattern Support Facebook group! I sewed this up in a Aqua Grunge Streaked Jersey from Cali Fabrics. 
Laundry Time 1hr
The pattern comes in both a scoop neck and Vneck version. I can sew up the scoop neck in about 30 minutes. I am a little less confident with Vnecks so it took me an hour, but the vneck was well worth the time addition and will be faster for me next time.
I think I have made 7 Laundry Day Tunics so far. I like them over leggings, over slim capris like the ones above, and over pencil skirts.
The next component of my outfit is Patterns for Pirates Peg Legs. Peg Legs are a leggings pattern that is also completely free if you join the Patterns for Pirates Sewing Group on Facebook. I have 6 pairs of Peg Legs. I wear them under Laundry Day Tunics on the weekends. I also wear them under shorter dresses at work.
These Peg Legs are sewn up in some amazing supplex from Zenith and Quasar.
Laundry Time 30
I cut out and sewed these awesome leggings in less than 30 minutes!
So, laundry is done, 1.5 hours. I have a whole new outfit now so we’ll just skip the folding bit for a while 😛 . This Laundry Day Tunic and Peg Legs Combo is pretty much my weekend uniform. So comfy and cute! Go grab these free patterns and great knits and make you some, then link them up!
