***** The GIVE-AWAY has ended - thanks for playing!*******In my last blog post, I talked myself into buying more fabric to sew another version of New Look 6559. As a result of the previous post, I decided I was OK with a magenta accessory for my simple little summer dress. This whole blogging thing is working for me, ha! That's how I came to sew this little cardigan, and I am calling it my Jacket #6 for 2011:
Once upon a time, I had different plans for the cotton in my simple little summer dress; I thought I'd pair it with this lavender knit, but I never bonded with the color. I am so glad I listened to my gut and just bought some magenta instead. I like the magenta and it will go with other things in my wardrobe.
But hey, maybe you like lavender! Leave a comment if you would like this fabric. I'll select a commenter randomly on Thursday evening, July 14, so I can put it in the mail to you on Friday. I am happy to ship internationally. Those flat rate boxes are not too expensive at all.
|from Christine Jonson - nice stuff! color is closest to Pantone 15-3508.|
I was so pleased to read a recent comment from Nancy Nix-Rice. Have you heard of her? Word gets around that her classes & workshops are a blast. Check out her website- and her newsletter about wardrobe topics.
I totally enjoyed buying new fabric and sewing up this fast & easy project. I am going to sew more easy stuff for a while. I am tired of hard!
Happy Sewing, all y'all.
