Description

I remember when I was a very young navy officer cadet and one of my seniors told me there was an army cadet that thought I was cute. A few days later I was sitting at lunch and saw one of my seniors staring at me from another table. I immeadiately panicked wondering what I was doing wrong and after a few minutes I saw his name tag and realized it was my forbidden admirer.

My heart stuttered and I experienced the kind of love you can only feel with your first. He soon became my fiancee. The same feeling was resurected when I stumbled on this gorgeous Texas Rose cord.

My first attempt was a flop and luckily Collete from Tessuti found a spare roll in her warehouse so I had a second chance. (I’m too lazy to unpick)

I made the pattern from a sloper and the fit was perfect.
The first day I wore them I recieved a lovely compliment and at the Sydney Craft show this week I had 5 women comment on them. Such a cool feeling!

I’ve found some similar fabric on the net to dupicate them.

TOP.
Fantastic orbit jersey with a self drafted pattern. I have almost perfected working with stretch fabric, it took a few practice runs but I am now happy enough to wear them.

Oh.. and I also now know to always pre wash your jersey.

    Wow, you’re in the navy!?! So impressive and so unusual (at least to me). The pants are lovely!

    Wonderful job!!! Love the fabric! And the top os fantastic. I still shy away from knits as they seem too intimidating to me. I have made 1 top for myself and it turned out ok but i need to learn how to either do rolled hems of buy a serger. Keep up the fantastic sewing!!!!!
