I put buttons all the way down the front instead of just one at the top.

I almost got rid of this fabric! So glad I didn't - it worked great for this cardigan. It's a crocheted knit.
This T-shirt had some stains, so I embellished it and covered them up! I copied a design I found in a Garnet Hill catalog. I may dye it later-- maybe not, haven't decided yet.
And here are a few better shots of everything on my dress form, Dottie.
This last one is a tank that I'm not finished with yet. I'm copying a Marc Jacobs design I found online; it still needs to be dyed and have buttons added. It's an old tank -- also stained and now covered up -- and pieces of an old t-shirt for the ruffle. Dottie has a t-shirt on underneath -- so the neckline is a bit hard to see. But you get the idea.

I like the jacket so much that I think I'll make another one this week. In the meantime, I'm working on this:
Unbelievably cute, and unbelievably complicated to figure out! It's one of those that needs every single mark noted. Probably not as hard as I'm making it sound -- the sewing is easy. It's the "where does this go?" part that's proving a little challenging.
I've chosen the pattern for my 2011 sew along. It's McCalls 6247, and I'll be making the skirt and then the cardigan. Hope you'll join me!
