Finally a picture post! Be warned, these pictures are what happen when you are home alone with the flu. lol.
Anyway, I lost the before picture to this first project, which is annoying becuase it is so much more interesting with. It started at as a gigantic men’s polo shirt. I stitched close the polo opening, turned that to the back, slimmed at and fixed the sleeves. I honestly like simple recons better than the really crazy ones.
So, on to the pictures of my Argyle sweater dress:
This is a picture of the back where the buttons and polo collar were:
The second is very simple. I found this shirt:
And made it fitted with medium length sleeves and black jersey bands around the bottom and the sleeves.
If you couldn’t tell, I like standing on my sink.
I apologize for the lack of interesting posts on my blog. I’ve been sick quite a lot, and I have been busy with a few swaps. I am trying to be better about posting more interesting things, but I forget a lot.
Someday I will also take better pictures, but I didn’t really feel up to it.
My day today consisted of sitting on the couch with a big basket of yarn next to me. I finished up some things, frogged some others. I also started a few new projects which I’m not sure about yet
I have a Halloween lament. I am the queen of Halloween. I make myself some crazy costume that U’ve been planning for months, I usually make costumes for a few other people, and I always end up with the most candy. Halloween is my favorite holiday- seriously, it is. But this year is different… First, I have nothing to do. I don’t really even have a posse I can gather up to watch stupid movies or go trick or treating with. I can’t have candy anyway, and making a costume to wear while being sick on the couch would probably be worse than not dressing up at all. Maybe next year… or I could just dress up for Christmas and pretend it’s Halloween. Now there’s an idea.
