Since I’m finding the silver lining of my far-from-successful trip to Las Vegas, here’s one more: I got to make another knit dress, this time with some really nice wool jersey.
(Please ignore the cat on a towel on the rug in the reflection.)
I used the pattern in the Sew U: Home Stretch book that taught me how to sew knits and I got the fabric from my favorite online discount place.
As I’ve mentioned before, I feel as chic in navy as I’m sure the hipsters and artists and designers feel in black. Plus, I don’t get bored sewing navy fabric and I always have to think of Coco Chanel. So a win all around, made possible by Las Vegas (ugh).
Damn girl! That is one flattering dress. Love it!
Nice dress, Karen!
Man, you really did not like Vegas, did you? 🙂
(I’m fairly indifferent to it myself… I like it well enough, but find its charms wear off quickly. I find the old Fremont Street area a lot more interesting than the current Strip, for whatever that’s worth.)
