Using a project from MimiG I saw that originally used McCalls 6844. I actually went to buy the pattern and they were out, so because when I have an idea, I CAN"T WAIT, i decided not to order online, and try myself. Using a few different pieces I own, and the pictures I saw from her website, I drafted my own version. And, I LOVE IT! I have gotten so many compliments on it, and i have to say, the fabric, the fabric..it’s just gorgeous. On the sheer side, it’s a knit that has perfect stretch to it. Perfect to wear to work then throw on a pair of jeans with heels for a night out, especially a summer or fall night! I’m tickled!
Light knit that I bought from Joanne’s…it was a red tag and they had 50% off the red tags. I got it for $2.19 per yard!! And i used less than 2 for the project.
