My Home, Colorad...
This is my first time posting and I am super excited because I love how this outfit turned out! This is Vogue pattern 1259 designed for 2 way strech knits, and believe me you want a 2 way strech. I have been in love with this pattern for a long time but knits used to scare me. The strech seemed intimidating. So I started expeirimenting with knits about a year ago and when I was close to my due date for my son about 10 weeks ago, I decieded to go for it. And I am glad I did!I decieded not to do the key hole in the back and I did not do the turleneck. The turle neck just didn’t look right on me. The pattern pieces are really odd (especially for the top) and did not start making sence until I started putting it together. The skirt was pretty easy but the top was more complicated.
I love the way it fits and the way I feel wearing it, and after haveing baby number 2 I was in need of feeling like a lady again!
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
