My SWAP has emerged as a colorful one - and it will be entirely wearable as spring arrives.
I sewed three tops from the same pattern this weekend, the cowl neck top from My Image Magazine Winter 2011/2012.
|This black top above started off as a long-sleeved top and careless serging turned it into a short-sleeved top.|
|I waited until I had the pattern perfected and appropriate attention span in place before cutting into this amazing green silk jersey. It is a great color with blue undertones, and brighter than what this photo suggests. This has been in my stash since I scored several beautiful pieces from Jane of Lucky Sew-and Sew. She has great taste in fabric- nothing but the best quality! I have enjoyed sewing many of the pieces I acquired from her.|
|This gives a little better idea of the color. |
I am really pleased to be sewing with colorful fabrics.
Won't I be the bees knees on St. Patrick's Day?
Also, I have ordered a few patterns from the Australian pattern-maker Style Arc:
It will probably be another week before these arrive, but I am checking the mail every day!
