Sally was also nice enough to put me into a blog post the other day of hers so I thought I would show you what I found that day while out with her. It was like a day in the life of me in 2007! I lived in Uptown for 4 years before moving on the far northwest end.
post and I also have an article in an issue of SewStylish from a few years ago that talks about using cut and sew knits for sweaters.
I don't know if this will work the way I want it to, so this very well could be a project that falls flat on it's face. So.... we'll see, right?
I did make (and this is a super-old picture!) a dress out of 2 sweaters for my Knitwear design class in college. Have a look here:
This is from 2007 (so that makes me 21 in this?), perhaps the only photo I have of this sweater dress and boy was it hot to wear! Yikes. So hopefully, my new sweater reconstruction thing here goes well. I'm making a 60's-ish colorblock sweater with alternating colorblocks... if it works.
These specifically are from 1966.
I also had to go home with this dress, not that I need any more dresses EVER. The print was too good to pass up.
Lots of projects coming up! I'll be working on using a quilting technique for use in appliques, more stash-busting, I want to make at least one or two 60's style tunic tops for myself, I have little collection ideas rolling around in my head (time to do more Photoshop boards!), and in general, more experimentation.
