Ending on a positive note!

My last post was rather negative.  I decided I needed to end the day on a more positive note and wanted to show you the Renfrew Top #2 work in progress.  For a cowl neck top with nice drape but not so low, this is the better top for me. 

The only thing left to do is sew the hem band and sleeve bands.  That will have to wait for another day. 

This is a nice feeling knit; it was a little fiddly at times to sew but it stitches up well.

Next up is a skirt using a Sandra Betzina Vogue pattern that I have had for several years.  I purchased a nice Italian wool fabric from Mood late last year.  With the continuing cold weather I think I will get some good wearing time from it.

  2. That looks great on you! Especially with the jeans, it is very figure flattering, accentuating all the good bits :)

    The fabric is pretty and interesting too!
