I had a great week sewing for my self. First I'll show you the cozy cardi I made a while back using my morphed version of McCall's 6844.
The closures are some that I found on a belt I bought at a discount store . They don't stay closed so I put tape on the back so they won't open !!
Isn't infinity scarf, a Christmas gift, the perfect accessory ?
The fabric is a wool blend boucle knit (Fabricville ) and is warm enough to wear as outerwear on a milder winter day. I've worn this many times already and I get lots of compliments. This is how I like to wear it.
I also used for this wrap.
The second piece I'm showing you today is a combination of my Surefit Designs sloper and Sandra Betzina's 1477 .I love this pattern but the twisted bodice accentuates the bust more than I like and I thought the lower half would work with a simple bodice and it does .
The fabric is a poly/lycra from Fabricville.
The trim is a mesh knit. I tried out the twisted neckband and it works I think
I made use of the selvedge and topstitched the cuff in place.
Instead of the bust dart , I shirred the sides . Probably should have aimed higher !!
This is an every day top or an around the house top. I don't love it but its OK. I needed a change from the things I wear all the time as most of my life is lived at home.. I wanted it to be long enough to wear with jeggings ( I don't wear leggings much ).For me that means 30 to 32 " in length. I did wear this to Sewing Group the other day and didn't get any compliments so I guess no one else loves it either . LOL.
This week, I'm having a mini sale of my wraps at my Retired Teachers meeting so I'll be making a few more but I've got a tunic/dress cut out that I'm anxious to get to . I hope you have time to sew this week .
