Jalie 2449

I did it. I finished something for me. Presenting Jalie 2449.

The fabric was a great deal at Fabricland. Unfortunately, I think the top looks better on the dress form than it does on me. I'll wear it to work next week and see what the reaction is...

I have a couple of knits in my stash that I'd like to use:

I bought this one with New Look 6648 in mind after seeing Gigi's version that I can't seem to find a picture of right now.

I was thinking of making Jalie 2794 with this one, but somehow I think it may be too "cute".

And I now think I should have bought more of this one so I could make New Look 6429 but I only have 1.5 metres. This fabric is so soft...

Any suggestions??

Happy Birthday to Me

Where does the time go??

My gift to myself is to spend tomorrow sewing to make myself something to wear. I plan to make Jalie 2449. The pattern is traced and the fabric is prewashed...No excuses.
