Swatching for February Lady Sweater using Rowan Cotton Jeans in Hessian.
Back story: I was purchasing a pattern from Jimmy Bean's Wool in anticipation of Vest-uary II, and noticed this yarn on sale. How could I resist? I mean, I was already ordering something.
Cutting out "Wraparound" pinafore tunic from Ottobre Woman 5/2009 (style #7) in a fabric that Thalia commented looked like something from the Delia's catalogue we just got in the mail. Which would have been okay if she hadn't been flipping through the catalogue saying, "Ew, that dress looks like it's for an old lady," and various other comments of that ilk.
Back story: Actually I wanted my next sewing project to be this Simplicity pattern and Fabric.com fabric (I think it's micropoly knit, but I don't recall)
but when I went downstairs to retrieve the Fabric.com fabric it had disappeared. So I figured that if I worked my way through all the knits, eventually it would turn up. I got out this piece, traced the pattern, tried pinning it out, discovered that the fabric had started some sort of a self-shibori and REFUSED to lay flat. So I re-washed it, then pinned it out flat.
In the meantime I found the Fabric.com fabric, but at this point I almost have this pattern wrestled to the ground (note that I'm laying it out in single layers). So I'll finish cutting this, then start on the Simplicity pattern.
