So, nothing huge on this dress really. I have had the black knit part for ages now but it was a 3/4 length sleeve dress that was short... I didn't wear it much since it didn't look good with boots. This blogger at least a year ago posted about the same dress and how she just added length to it! Since then I have had it stuck in my head and wanted to do it. I actually found the colors I wanted and completed it! I think she had her layers gathered but I wanted them to look like they had been there when I bought it! I also added the purple sash... because why not! I LOVE the way it turned out. This dress will get LOTS of wear now!
Now this.... this is what I am REALLY excited about!!! I made the green cardigan! I went into Downeast Basics a couple weeks ago and saw this jacket:
I tried it on and LOVED it... until I looked at the price tag!! $44 ON SALE! So, as always I thought, "I can make that!". I put it back and walked out... difference was, this time I was GOING to actually make it! I got $9 worth of knit from JoAnns, made up my own pattern and it turned out just like I wanted it to! In fact, I like it WAY better than the one at Downeast! I made my sleeve have a little gather on top and I made the sleeves slimmer.
