So I know it's been a week. But it was a busy one. Thanks for the comment on which fabric I should use. I was kind of leaning toward the red fabric, so I've decided to make the dress in both fabrics. I bought lining, zippers, and interfacing yesterday. I plan on cutting everything out soon.
I was looking through one of my Victoria Secret Sale Catalogs and saw this crochet dress.
I thought to myself, I could make my own version mixing both crochet and knit. I went a bought a tank top from the Gap, pulled out this purple yarn from my stash and got busy. I started Wednesday night and this is what I have so far. What do you think? I plan on doing a post on how I did everything in case anyone want to make one. I'm thinking about lining the skirt portion with a tan fabric, accenting with tan satin ribbon and I'm going to go back to the Gap and get a tan tank top to go underneath the purple one.I swear I look awful in this picture. I've gained 10 pounds and need to get rid of them quick. It's disgusting.
Here's a peek at the blanket I made last weekend. I didn't get a chance to make the matching pillow so, I'm doing that some time today. I got the back of the vest I started last week done, and started on one of the front panels. I hope to have knitting progress pictures up by tomorrow.
I hate to post and run, but I'm meeting Lisa for afternoon brunch, sewing, and knitting. I made the Martha Stewart blueberry muffins again this morning to take with me.
Gotta go. I hope all of you are having a great weekend. As Adrienne says,
