Marie asked to see the fabric. So here - artfully arranged to appear completed when in fact it is just fabric - are what things looked like Saturday morning.
Both the sweater and the dress will have short summery sleeves and the sweater, yarn quantities permitting, will come to just below the waist.
The fabric caught my eye because of it's delightful, summery feel. Prints are in fashion this season, I have decided.
The pattern , other than the skirt of 10 gores, is quite simple with the one dash of style being the very-obviously- inserted zipper.
I am making the one colour view but with the sleeves. My oh-so-non-Michelle Obama-like, grandmotherly arms feature flex-a-flab that is best kept under cover.
This morning, the dress looks like this.
Well on the way to being finished. My only concern is - will it fit? Which leads to the concern of 'what will I wear if this project isn't a success?'
