Gasp! It's an outfit post!
I said I would show you my latest creation.
An old warm but not used pashmina which I wanted to make more useful. I struggle to wear wraps sometimes as they fall off my shoulders when doing housework. So decided to make it into a jacket.
|Fold the pashmina in half widthways. Cut off the amount you would like for sleeves (measure around your upper arm)|
|Of the remaining fabric, fold the sides to the middle and cut the folded sides.|
|Cut a shallow curve for the neck (measure off an old tshirt)|
|Stitch sleeves on at shoulders seams. Fold sleeves in half to mark centre.|
|Stitch underarm and side seam in one. Don't forget to clip curve so seam will lie flat.|
|Zig zag the edge or do a fancy buttonhole stitch or a narrow hem or bias binding etc. I was lazy!|
|A closeup of my result.|
In case you're wondering, I got bored with the black one day and needle felted a design.
A closeup of the brooch for Kezzie. Go and see her brooch collection. Amazing!
|Hood from the underneath top.|
Wet look black leggings and black shirt from Black Milk.
|Secondhand black wool tunic.|
|Old brooch bought for University Graduation.|
|(Unseen) Black cashmere jumper secondhand and felted black vest recycled from husband's moth eaten jumper.|
|(Don't laugh...I feel the cold!)|
|Hope you enjoyed this little walk through.|
It is certainly a pleasure to wear now.
Do you think you will have a go?
Until next time, keep on creating!
