Gillian started daring everyone on Twitter last week-end. And soon I was accepting a dare to use a colourfull (I do believe the work BRIGTH was used) piece of knit fabric from my stash to make underwear and/or lounge wear.

I remembered being inspired by  Scruffy Badger Winnie’s  Underwear post, and quickly downloaded the free vest pattern from the So, Zo…blog.

Bright fabric for the sewing dare

Bright fabric and elastic!

I had already drafted a pattern for lounge trousers (still pondering whether I should make it into a pattern. Do you think anyone else would want to sew lounge trousers?.) and during the stash-handling I came upon this bright turquoise stretch velour and this pink (it doesn’t really show up pink in the photo… but believe me – it is bright pink!) dotted cotton-lycra blend.. And then I found this amazingly coordinating Fold Over Elastic. So a lounge set it was!

This was so much fun! Getting a dare like that really started some creative juices in me. This was truly a Sewing-For-Fun project!

Unfortunately the pictures aren’t the best. I should have shown you the entire outfit, but I was having a case of the VPLs, that I didn’t catch when I got the pics, and I haven’t had the opportunity to retake them, so here you go..
