I love it when a frock comes together

Thank you for muslining New Look 6557 numerous times. Here is an action shot of my View B in Hydrangeas (RJR "Touched By The Sun").

Just so I remember:

  • I cut the midriff on the bias
  • did bias-bound edges instead of lining the bodice
  • added 1.5cm to top and bottom of back bodice
  • .5cm to top and bottom of each front bodice piece and did 1cm hem
  • cut the skirt just a smidge narrower to fit on the fabric.

I see a few more of these in my future...

What's with the non-frocks lately?

A girl needs separates and accessories too. (Oh what I would give to be able to make shoes. Interested in joining me on a shoe making course in Florence or somewhere?)

Anyway, here's the hourglass sweater, from last minute knitted gifts, hemmed, grafted and steam blocked. Cast on Friday, December 29th, finished Sunday, January 7th. Woo Hoo. I may never knit a jumper this fast ever again.
