So...I got a couple things done over the Presidents' Day weekend. The pictures are not so great because it's pouring down rain outside and I don't want to drag Hedy out into that. She's posing in the messy laundry room instead; please disregard mess and admire a couple of perfect neckbands.
The first one, Simplicity 1071, is made from a remnant that I believe Annie gave me a few years ago. It's a two layer textured knit in an odd plummy brown and taupe color. The neckline is higher and rounder than the Vogue 9057 below, and the fit is much boxier. I like them both!
The second is another iteration of Vogue 9057, which I've made a couple times now. I love the fit of the shoulders and the curve of the hem. The fabric is a very light weight polyester from Pacific Fabrics in shades of taupe, cream, brown, orange and gold.
The picture on the right gives a better feel for the colors.
It's possible I may get a jacket cut out this weekend too!
