Sewing mixed up with some books, recipes and musings.

I've so enjoyed reading about Couture Boot Camp with Susan Khalje in the past week. One of these days I'll try a lace garment of mine own....but today is not that day. Instead I used up an inexpensive lacy knit fabric in my stash for this quick swimsuit coverup. It's warm and sunny in SW Florida and the pool in our complex is heated so I'm enjoying an hour or so at the end of the day splashing around. This fabric is years old....from whenever Hancocks closed their local stores and everything was 70% off. The pattern is my Chicos knock off blouse poncho tutorial slightly lengthened to make it more dress like. Finished: 43" wide by 31" inches long. Sort of looks good as a long tunic as well. Sometimes you just need a quick sewing easy project. Done.
