I have made a number of really nice pieces lately, and I want to showcase some of them for you. They have allowed me to wear what I normally do, but up the style quotient a little bit.
First up is Vogue 8704, a really cute and easy hat pattern which calls for fleece. JillyBe has shared some recent research into environmental problems with fleece-let's just forget about that for the time being! JillyBe and I both LOVE fleece. I don't think either of us want to quit. Is there a 12 step program?
Here are some pics of my new winter hats--->hats 2011
Also in my closet are 3 renditions of this great casual pattern: McCall's 6244 Disregard the tween model and use your imagination on how to layer each of these pieces. I have made three long vests, and two long sleeve tees. I used cotton poly knit for some, and a lycra for one of the vests. The lycra vest, in a pale blue, is a nightshirt. layering tees Click to see some shots of the cotton tees layered together.
Finally, I have a vest waiting to be photographed, and a fleece jacket in progress. Here are those patterns, both of which I highly recommend!
