Some photos of finished projects...

 I have made a couple of more things I have not reviewed and do not intend to review.  However I did get some photos last time my camera man was available.  


The top is a Marcy Tilton pattern 8636.    This pattern was gifted by a mate - thanks Lynn!   I made it with a knitwit mesh called Italian Animal Fantasy Mesh ( no 4 in this link.)  I backed the main body pieces in a chocolate brown jersey I bought on sale once and wondered how I would use.  I like this top - Have not been able to wear it yet, with the cold weather but look forward to the chance! :)

The skirt is a lovely black matt rayon jersey bought from Gorgeous Fabrics. The pattern is from Style Arc - the Fay pattern.  Very simple - easy to make, could be a little shorter for me - maybe next time.  It has an interesting 'bag-out' hem - fabric doubled over to create the hem.  This works as it means you can make the skirt from a light weight fabric as it is doubled over.




 Then crochet - a beanie made for my Dad... ravelry link here.


And another beret - this time for my Mum in an alpaca blend...


Ciao for now - next up skirts for Spring...

  4. I've never sewn with mesh - I see lovely prints and always shy away from it. I may just give it a go now. I love the crocheted beret. I've been knitting berets from a Jo Sharp pattern - they take one ball of yarn and one night to knit. I have them in every colour I can find! Now I want one like yours ...

  5. I like the outfit--a nice transitional look into Fall (NOT that I am ready for Fall). Great hats!
