2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

January 16, 2014

THE SECOND TIME AROUND...

...as I mentioned before, it would be a crying shame not to make McCall's 6844 a second time, especially since I LOVED the pattern so much at very first sight.  I made this floral sweater knit version over Christmas break, but had not worn it yet.  I paired it with a chocolate pontederoma knit pencil skirt (McCall's 6654) made last winter.  I'm still surprised that I enjoy peplum detailing so much.  Makes me feel as though I have a waistline (of sorts) once again.  I use to think this design WAS NOT FOR ME.  I was wrong!, as it actually gives one a slimming illusion.

Yet another school picture.  One day I'll venture out to more interesting venues.  But for now, I have to grab a photographer wherever I can - this time I thought I'd venture out into the Criminal Justice classroom for a little change of atmosphere.

Ninot Jacket Update:
Last night I was able to knock four items off my "finish line list" (so named by Oonaballoona).  All that's left to do is:
  • the lining, &
  • the hems
Maybe I'll get to wear it on Monday; that is if it's not 13 degrees or 60 degrees.  In Georgia we never can tell...

  5. This really is a great pattern, both versions look great on you, it has the smart look of a jacket, but with the comfort of a cardigan, might have to get this one.
