I'm house sitting for John and Lisa this weekend, spending quality time with my favorite puppies.hold still dogs!oh how precious!I'm working on a sweater this weekend from (one of) my new books, Fitted Knits by Stefanie Japel. I really love a lot of the designs in this book.
I'm making the short-sleeved cardi with ribbing. I'm using Cotton-tots yarn in white and yellow. I like being able to try it on as I go. I'm working on the back decreases now and will probably start on the ribbing tonight.
Today I’m sharing a not-at-all-ordinary shirtdress, the Kalle Shirtdress by Closet Case Patterns. Why not ordinary? Well, this pattern is packed with great design details like a dramatic curved hem and an oversized fit. In truth, I made the most traditional version, with sleeves and a button placket all the way down the front. But now that I’ve already tested this pattern once, I’m excited to try some of the other variations. Because they have a lot of details, shirt dresses are fun to sew and a great way to practice new skills. This dress is part of my sewing plans for my upcoming trip to Copenhagen and the pattern is on my 2018 Make Nine list. Two birds, one stone!
