I've continued to make my Four Way wraps and have sold another $330.00 worth since my big sale. I'm now working on paying myself back for the money I spent on fabric.My next sale /fashion show will be in June and I'm making bathing suit cover ups in addition to the wrap-s for this one. I think I've created a monster. People are really pushing me to do this so what can I do ???
When I go to a fabric store , I have a really hard time to resist a two sided fabric. Then I can never decide what to make . I always feel that I must use both sides or make a reversible garment.
This past fall Fabricville had this lovely two sided knit . It came in red or black and each was backed by a mini black and white stripe. I bought both colour ways knowing I would make a boat neck top with the striped side and a waterfall cardi in either the red or black. I also wanted to use some of my fabric to make Four Way wraps for my sale. The dilemma this time was which to use for the cardi, red or black ??
Here's what I decided in the end.
I'll wear that top to death because it's my favorite style of all times. I used what I consider to be my Burda sloper, 6988. I pretty well get a perfect fit with this pattern. This time I scooped the neckline ever so slightly in both the front and back so the boat neck is not quite as severe as in other things I've made in the past .
For the cardi, I used S2603 , now OOP.
However, I cut away about 6" from the collar and front to minimize the amount and length of the "fall". I love the result and it's not as cumbersome as others I've made in the past.
I decided to make a wrap for myself to wear with the top out of the red. I'll use the rest of the yardage for a future fund raiser.
I couldn't bring myself to get pics taken today so sorry about that.
