First up is another TNT paired with a StyleArc Marni Jacket. I love this TNT dress. I don't think I will stop making them any time soon. Love the Marni too but I think 2 is enough.
The fabric is gorgeous but unfortunately doesn't show up very well in the pics. It is a reversable knit with a "tweed like" look (I think that is the right term). I ummed and ahhhed over which side to use as a dress and which to use a jacket etc. One side is black with light taupe flecks and the other is light taupe with black flecks.
Once I had made up the dress I instantly wanted another in the lighter colour. (and some slacks in it and a top - it sews up a dream too) I rushed back to Remnants Warehouse to buy some more but alas sold out!
Here is a close up of the fabric. I have turned the hem of the dress up so you can see the contrast.
The other item I want to show is another StyleArc Abby cardi in a lightweight taupe sweater knit that was a bugger to work with. I haven't sewn with this fabric before and it wasn't easy. Very open knit. I do like the end result though.
|A little windy but you can see the ruffle of the rolled hem.|
I used a rolled hem for the edges. I really like this cardi and think it is flattering because it elongates the body. I think this is my style. TNT straight dress (pegged in slightly) and the long cardi.
I have also made a lovely teal one of these cardi's but didn't get a chance to get a photo taken.
That's it for now.
Have a nice night / day - whatever it is in your neck of the woods.
