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 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.
