I hope you are enjoying your weekend. I had some more fabric come in that I ordered, and I realized I made a mistake and ordered a bunch of lightweight sweater knits. They are so pretty I will have to find a way to use them anyway. One of them is bound to become a cardigan, for sure. As for the other two, I will probably just have to wear a tank or cami underneath whatever top I sew. I am open to any other ideas you may have regarding this. That just goes to show I have to pay more attention when I am shopping online.
Actually, I must have been in rare form when I was placing this order because I ordered Neon Orange fabric!! I stared in horror as I was taking it out of the box, but as I held it next to my body it didn't look as bad as I first thought. So I will see what I end up doing with that piece. It may even turn out to be my favorite (smile).
Since my last post I have been trying to figure out what the first garment I sew for the year will be. I am still in the middle of the Sew the Perfect Fit class from Craftsy, but I wanted to start something (on the side) that was a little easier, and less time-consuming. It took me a couple of days to finally come up with this:
This is Vogue Basic Design 8536. I love the different neckline variations, and the simple design. My hope is that this will become a TNT (tried n' true) pattern that I can use throughout the year.
I haven't decided on which View to make yet, but it will definitely be one of the long-sleeved versions. In fact, I may try a few versions!
