My darling Grandma Judy and I went shopping at Joann Fabrics a couple weeks ago during one of their big sales. I picked up some button the the CPJ and 11 McCalls patterns. If you're familiar with Joann's I'm sure you know what the red tag section is? Well it is a sale section and it was 50% extra off at that time. My friend and I are both really into teal/aqua at the moment, so I immediately thought of her when I saw this fabric. Turns out that since it was only $1 a yard (!) my Grandma just bought the whole bolt for me! Like 9 yards I think. :-) Loveliness. :-)
So I gave some of it to Shannen and she is going to come over sometime and sew up a shirt. I made one up yesterday afternoon to test the pattern and was a little worried about the finished product, but I think it is growing on me. Anyway, I wore this outfit to my awards ceremony last night and one of my new friends loved it and I told her she should make one. :-) So Kristiana will also be making one.
(Finally got to wear that pendant! Been looking for something to match it. :-)
Here it is.
Pattern: McCalls 6034, view b
Hemming knits is not the loveliest task in the work, so thankfully this pattern only requires the back of the neck to be hemmed.
I realize I am wearing it a little short here, but with this skirt it did not sit well very low. I tried it on with jeans today and it works though. :-)
Pictures thanks to the tripod and self-timer. Now...to get a remote. ;-)
