Grosgrain blog Every day in December (!!!) she bought a thrift store sweater and embellished it, very Anthopologie without the price. Anthropologie sweaters Now, at my age I have to be careful with that Anthropologie thing....too much and I don't look hip, I look like the Carol Burnett washerwoman mix wardrobe.
I don't wear solid black too frequently so wanted to embellish it with something softer. Luckily I had yards and yards of this lace, I believe inherited from my mother when she was on a yard sale binge in the 80's. Measured the neckline to the first button, tripled it and gathered the lace then hand stitched it around the neckline. Did the same at the pocket area and I'm quite happy with the result.
In addition to this fashion project I did get some home dec sewing done over the past few days. Recovered my dirty ironing board cover and then made pillows as requested for the great friends who watch our condo for us in the summer. I'm not even a fan of blue in decorating but I love the indoor outdoor fabric she chose.
It's good to be back blogging and sewing. I love holidays, festivities and fun but I also like my solitude and quiet time. That's what easy projects like these give me, time to think and regroup.
