I had quite a big length of fabric left over from my sister's coat so I'll show you what I came up with. I had a lot of fun with this one. I used this OOP Marci Tilton Vogue pattern View A which I've never made and have always wanted to try out.
I just decided to wrap the edges including the neckline with strips of fabric which being a knit was quite doable without cutting them on the bias.I stitched,then simply trimmed close to the stitching line and I was done.
I like the way the edges "ruffled "a bit.
And the way the raw edges show up. Very mod, don't you think!
My cute top needed something more so I found these great buttons and thought they were just the right finishing touch.
What do you think...with or without the buttons???
Here it is by itself as worn now.
Or with a turtle neck for winter.
I made the back plain without the zig zag effect.
I love this thing. It is so cozy to wear. And DH said it's cute, always a plus.
I would have thought the fabric too heavy for indoor wear but not so. I also bought the white version (but again at Fabricville) and it will probably become a cardigan.
What do you think? I want to try this pattern once again in View B which I guess I have made before here.
I have a couple more things to show you but they will have to wait till later. That's all the energy I have for now!
Happy sewing from
