Weekend Update


Here's what I managed to make over the weekend. OOP Butterick 4232 View C. The fabric is from Gail K's in Atlanta that was purchased over a year ago on one of my trips to visit my daughter. It was an easy to sew project.
It is semi-fitted, pullover, above hip top has long sleeves and stitched hems, flounce on the sleeves and back & front. You can't tell on the fabric print that the front flounce comes across. I think it's cute though. This is one of my replacement items for my wardrobe. I'll wear this with a cami underneath and slacks or a skirt. It's been great weather here the past few days with tomorrow (or today, it's after midnight now) forecasted to go as high as 64 degrees. YAY!! That is very unusual for northern Illinois in February! But we will take what we can get! Have a great sewing day!

It's also spring like in Tenn. but we're in store for a windy storm apparently. Not so good. Hope the tornadoes stay away. We'll probably have snow next week! I love that fabric. Great job.
