Beach holidays are around the corner and I made myself a red bikini! - As férias estão à porta e fiz um bikini vermelho!

Image
EN Summary: I tried yet another sewing expertise area and made myself a red bikini for the beach holidays. In this article I won't get into much specifics about the construction of this particular bikini but instead I'm sharing a couple of video tutorials (they were recorded in Spanish but I believe the procedures are perfectly understandable even if you don't understand the language). Keep reading the full article. --- PT Sumário: Tentei mais uma área no domínio da costura e fiz um bikini vermelho para as férias. Neste artigo não vou entrar no detalhe da construção deste bikini em particular, pois em vez disso tenho para partilhar dois passo-a-passo em video (gravados em espanhol) que explicam exatamente como se faz.

2012#6 - Baby polo sweater

Português
English (uncheck the other box and check this one)
Viva queridas leitoras e leitores, há algum tempo que não passo por aqui (é por falta de tempo e não por falta de vontade). Com o progredir da gravidez aumentam as consultas, exames, aulas de preparação para o parto, preparativos, etc. e além do mais continuo a trabalhar. Sei que isto não é nada, depois do bebé nascer é que vão ser elas…
Esta sweater foi publicada na revista Phildar Layette nº 449 (edição francesa) que poderão encontrar facilmente no PicasaWeb, se estiverem interessadas.
Modifiquei alguns aspectos do modelo, eliminando os cordões de atar e substituindo-os por botões. Também coloquei um botão extra na parte de trás do colarinho, para o manter dobrado no lugar.

O fio que usei é o REGATA da Rosarios4 (100% algodão, 100g = 275m).

Conclusão: Gostei bastante e tenciono aproveitar as instruções para fazer pelo menos outro polo do mesmo género! Beijinhos e obrigada por passarem aqui!

Hi there, dear friends and readers! It has been a while since my last post (due mainly to lack of time). As my pregnancy progresses to near the due date, there are more doctor appointments, more exams, prenatal classes, etc. and adding to all that I’m still working full time (and I will continue to work while I feel up to it, keeping busy is better for me). And this is nothing compared to what is said to be coming after giving birth…
This sweater model was published in Phildar Layette nº 449 (in French), which can be found on PicasaWeb, if you’re interested.
I altered a few details: went for small colored buttons instead of the strings and also added a button on the back of the collar to keep it in place.

The yarn used was once again from ROSARIOS4 (a Portuguese brand); it’s called REGATA, a nice 100% cotton yarn (3.50 oz = 299 yds) which knits beautifully.

Conclusion: I’m very happy with the end result and plan on using this model again, at least once more.
Thank you so much for visiting, I’ll be back as soon as I can!

Gail: Thanks and yes, it's a boy! We've known for sure for quite some time because I made an amniocentesis earlier in my pregnancy due to being over 35 years old (we were reassured that all is fine with the baby, and knowing the gender ahead with 100% certainty was a little bonus).
