Thanks for the compliments on the top and skirt. I love bright color during the winter months because most days, the sun is behind the clouds.
For this photo, I used S2560 to make a quick cardigan a few weekends ago. The knit print fabric came from Joann's. My daughter reminded me that I had this pattern and it would make up quickly with only the two yards of fabric that I purchased. It's View D with the sleeves cut a bit longer from View A. Plan to wear with top and slacks for work.
Currently, I'm working on a jacket & skirt. The jacket is B5531 and the skirt is from the Vogue pattern mentioned in the previous post. The fabric is a stretch bengaline from Fabric.com. It's been in my fabric collection for maybe a year. Last night as I was pressing darts in the jacket, I noticed that this fabric seemed to have more stretch than I thought. I hope it will wear well once complete. I think I would have chosen a different garment for this fabric. This should be finished by the weekend so I'll have pictures to show.
