Not A Knit Lover...

in the wearing or the sewing of 'em.   And yet, last post I've got on a double fused knit dress and this week...


~ a nice relaxing op art knit skirt ~

It's the outrageous prints that get me.  Okay, but this one wasn't my fault at all.  It was part of a mystery fabric bundle sent to me for free.


~ using Butterick 6219 skirt pattern ~

Made a little too big, but, I didn't know about knits - how they can be made smaller than wovens.  But hey, it's still works.


~ nice boots, huh ~

worn with my velvet and linen trimmed crop top from Tina Givens Frankie pattern along with a dotted swiss cotton blouse from Simplicity 3786.


~ Harley Davidson Moto Boots from ebay ~

worn with lace-capped crew sox.  mmmm, delicious.


And now is the time for all good women to come to the Visibles party with Patti at Not Dead Yet Style!  To I Will Wear What I Like at Catherine's and Shoe and Tell at Cherie's when they go live.  See you all there.

    1. It was one of those offers from fabricmart.com. If I bought some fabric, they threw in one of their mystery fabric bundles for free. kinda fun.

    1. Hey girl, I just keep a look out. I wear an 8 - 8 1/2 depending. I always ask for the length x width measurements. If I don't get them, I don't bid. The skirt's a real easy make...
