All week I've done nothing but sew. Why? Because I could!
I finished four pieces all of which were at least partly navy blue. I didn't have to change the thread on my sewing machine or my serger all week. And I still have two more navy pieces to make!!!Maybe just a little overkill you say?
I'll only show you a couple of the pieces today because of the lack of a photographer. ( I can't possibly ask my husband to drag himself away from the Montreal/Pittsburgh game now can I!)
The first two pieces were inspired by a fashion show I was in, a couple of weeks ago. The stylist put me in a cardi much like this
with a matching skirt.The cardigan cost $90.!! And it was too long so I decided to make View B, the shorter version. I had a piece of NAVY poly/lycra which had cost me nothing so I was able to get both the cardi and sleeveless top out of it.Here it is on Antoinette.
I like it this way too.
The little sleeveless top is a nice fit and will be a great piece for summer when I want something more than a T-shirt to wear.
I took the easy way out with this set. All hems were finished with Steam-a-Seam (one of my best friends).I don't wear my clothes all that much since I have a lot of them so this won't need to be washed a lot.
(Whoops,! Looks like two different things ,doesn't it? A photographer,I'm not,LOL.)
I'm really quite thrilled with this set. I always thought I was too short for that look but my husband said as I was leaving for church
" What a nice outfit!"
So here it is on.
I'll have more in a couple of days.
Hope you ,too, had time to sew this week!Have a great one!
