Missed last weeks post. I was trying to figure out the best way to transfer pictures from my hubby's computer to mine-without losing any of them! In any case, here is what I finished before I started working on Christmas!
Around this time last year, I went and bought a whole new wardrobe in anticipation of being hired to the new job (it will be a year the end of February, hooray). In any case, most of what I bought was for cooler weather, so I needed some tops for warm weather. So, I bought some patterns (at a JoAnn's sale for $1.00 each) and made these. These are just overtops so I could wear something cooler underneath. I still get hot flashes!
I particularly like this one. It is a pale lavender. The next picture shows the little pleating detail in the front.
A pullover to be worn alone.
This top is actually a size too small but there is enough give that I can still wear it. It is black.
This one was made from the same pattern as above but I only got one wearing out of it. The weave was so open there was little for the stitching to hold onto and there wasn't enough give. The shoulder seam pulled out the first time I wore it. If I make this type again, I will have to use twill tape to give something for the stitching to hold.
A little dress for Autumn. I had the fabric, the lace and the pattern. It was just begging to be made.
Here is a picture of Summer Breezes on my Aunt's bed. She has a room in an assisted living facility. All the other ladies there are jealous, LOL!
That's it for this post. Next post I will show you some of what I made for Christmas presents!
