San Francisco, C...
This is my FIRST completed sewing project… I know it’s not perfect.. and I know that I can’t sew in a straight line.. but I’m still feeling accomplished…
Right now in San Francisco it’s not cold enough to wear a knit sweater and not hot enough to wear a short sleeve. So I made a hoodie out of a lighter fabric.
I love that business/casual look.. so this is what I came up with. Also the v-neck is a little low so I had to add a ribbon to keep the shoulders from falling off.
Tweed style stretch material
Stretch lace trim
All gotten a discount fabric store. All of these supplies for under $10… more like $5.
Burda Style for the amazing pattern
Amy S. for creating the pattern
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
