2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

FINISHED #3 ON THE FALL HIT LIST ...

FLIPPING ON OVER INTO FALL
#3 Ponte Roma Knit Cheetah Cowl Neck Sheath - Completed
After a few interruptions, a trip to the fabric store and two days work on the project I finished my #3 on my Fall Hit List (19 more items to go).  I'm showing a picture of the dress on Lady Faye, but will post it again as soon as I wear it - with temperatures dropping steadily that should be real soon.



Dark fabric doesn't show very well.  I am pretty satisfied with the finished project.  Now on to clean up the sewing room and then choose another item from the Hit List.  Hope every one enjoyed Columbus Day, I certainly did...

  18. Your dress looks so nice. I was really interested in this project because I have some similar fabric but no idea what to make out of it. I was in G Street Fabrics yesterday and they had a whole table of animal print jacquard ponte knits and a picture from a fashion magazine showing a dress very similar to yours. You are right on trend!
