The Weather Outside is Frightful

Yes folks it is cold out there…now mind you not as cold as my home town of Chicago but cold enough. So what did the craft Diva do? I made myself a jumper,

It is a simplicty Pattern which i will have to scan and post. It was VERY simple i need to make a couple more of these to wear on the go. The Material is a stretch knit with the funky circles and sheer stripe. I plan to wear a white men’s shirt or a white turtle neck under it.

The Stretch knit was a beast to work with and cut out *my first time* but it was not too bad after i got the hang of it. Great relaxing way to spend my Thanksgiving weekend…

More Whites….

Ok as you all can tell i am a bit obsessed with whites. I need them for the work i do in the order…So when i cant find what i want.. i make it. Which is good and bad… I don’t always have as much time as i would like to sew…but any who…

Here we go with some of more of my creations:

this is my first white dress, it was a vogue pattern which is no longer in print. It had been a while since i sewed and did not realize that i should adjust the pattern because vogue cuts small….i still need to add a panel on each side to this dress so i can wear it…but it is made of a white brocade material i got from joann’s, the dress is long to the ankles and is sleeveless.

Since the pattern is out of print i found a Butterick pattern that is basically the same pattern just says Butterick…..

Now these next two attempts are my long whites. As many in the order know we need to wear long white *i.e. to the floor white dress or skirt* so i have 2. One has a train, one does not. I love a train on a skirt lol, both are made with white crepe back satin i got for a steal from joann’s:

I need to make a top to match but i have not gotten around to it..but i will show you all when i do. Here are the patterns for the two skirts one is out of print one is not, they are both simplicity:

I am going to try the full skirt with crepe back satin.

My last one and one of my favorites is my white fleece cape i made and embroidered the oes star in white on it *i have an


machine a small one* It is a McCall’s Pattern
