Between working on my brother's costume, mercury retrograde, and the upcoming trips, I hesitated to work on any new projects. But I REALLY had a sewing itch and decided to go for it. First I have brown knit fabric I brought awhile back specifically for the top in New Look 6735. It's one of those articles of clothing that you want one in every color. In my case I'm able to get both a long (well 3/4 sleeve) and short sleeve version with just 1.
- I found this green and gold butterfly knit and I love it. But what to make with it? I have such a hard time deciding on fabric with prints. The interesting thing about this fabric is the 8" strip on one salvaged edge; which is good for contrast especially in the style I'm planning on making. After washing, drying, and ironing (yes a little bit!), it was time to cut. Finally finished cutting what I thought was all the peices.
