Loving my knits! I purchased this Craftsy online class that features Marcy Tilton’s Vogue Pattern 9057, view B. This was round one so to speak. The class offers many ways to incorporate different knit fabrics into one top: using neckline, sleeve and length variations. This top, using only one fabric, was my test drive. I used a lightweight, printed, two-way stretch knit from Mood NYC. This top is perfect for cool spring days. I paired it with skinny jeans and suede booties. I’m looking forward to sewing up another and trying two or more different knits!

Me-Made-May 2016 Post #8

IMG_4381.jpg

This month, I am participating in a global challenge called “Me-Made-May 2016” sponsored by SoZo. I have posted twice weekly: once on the weekend and once during the week. I did fall off the posting bus this past week as we were busy, out of state, celebrating our daughter’s college graduation. I did not totally blow things off, however, as I asked a few very kind souls take pics of me in clothes I made for this special weekend. This photo was taken in a wonderful restaurant in Ithaca, NY called Agava.

This look, a pullover shift dress, features a drapey, paisley, 4-way, printed stretch knit, Nicole Miller for Joann’s (FAB!). The dress is based on the commercial sewing pattern McCalls #6886. I dropped the neck line a bit and changed the sleeve to a cap style sleeve. Love this shift dress!
