I completed my outfit-a-long outfit! This is a sew/knit along hosted by Andi Satterlund and lladybird, where you have to sew an item and knit a garment designed to wear together. Last year I was only brave enough to make a skirt and a Myrna. This year I decided to make a dress, and settled on Megan by Tilly Walnes. I again went for the featured sweater - Vianne. So here they are..
I'm not so sure about the Vianne. I really like the pattern but I'm not convinced by the length. It is unblocked at the moment, so I may try that and see what I think. Both years I have knit a cropped cardi, thinking they would be ok with a dress but next year I will definitely rethink!
Otherwise, I have started Daniel's rainbow hat which shouldn't take too long to finish and a pair of thick slipper socks for me. I am still moving slowly along with Rhombing around and Curiosa.
I have read a few pages of The Seas and enjoying it so far.
Linking with Nicole and Ginny.
The dress is so lovely and the colours on your sweater/cardi is gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Awesome job hun xxx
Oh so nice! I set my sewing machine up this spring, hoping to get a chance to do some sewing for myself-has not happened yet, but maybe this winter.ReplyDelete
It's quite good fun once you get going!Delete
Looks wonderful! And they go together really well!ReplyDelete
Ooo I love the sweater with the dress! I think the cropped length would look good paired with dresses or skirts with a tucked in blouse, but if you want it more versatile I think longer would be better. Well done!ReplyDelete
ooooooh that is so pretty and it just so happens to be my color!! great job, it looks wonderful on you!!!!ReplyDelete
I love your dress and it fits perfect. You are really an accomplished seamstress. The sweater is so pretty, too. I'm sure you enjoyed making these items. Have a great day :)ReplyDelete
Wow that dress is amazing, good going, fab xReplyDelete
You look lovely. The colors are great.ReplyDelete
I was wildly impressed when I saw the dress in the previous post. I don't even know how to express how amazed I am by the pair. I love the sweater and the length; it's fabulous with the dress. I hope you feel proud of yourself!ReplyDelete
That is such a pretty design on the front of your cardi! I like the cropped length with a dress. Fabulous job making both to go together!ReplyDelete
The cardigan is beautiful. Looking forward to seeing how it will look once it's blocked.ReplyDelete
Yay for finishing that beautiful cardigan. Looks great!ReplyDelete
