Choir Wardrobe 03 02 14
Anyway, being March 2 the colors have changed to navy, mint green and tan. That cardi from Coldwater is a weird color; next to my gray, it looks tan...next to tan, it looks gray. But under the lights, well, it kinda goes brownish so I wore it. ;-)
The scarf is a hemmed rectangle remnant of rayon challis which really is a hair more green than it looks in the photo. The stage lighting does weird things with mint green, too...it all looked white or gray as the blue lights in the array washed it out. Interesting.
The T under it was my Saturday whip together frankenpattern of the Jalie 2566 t shirt; the knit is very stretchy, but also very firm so I used the larger size tracing so it wouldn't be forced into obvious stretching. It's cotton/lycra and really a pretty casual top, but it's ok as a bottom layer. It's also really comfy and I wish I'd made it early in the season so I could've worn it more. I cobbled up the sleeve using the cap sleeve from the T and the long sleeve, shortened, from the cardigan. Just pinned one on top of the other and folded the extra on the cardi sleeve to match. Now I really wish I'd traced that so I could do it again easily.
Next time. ;-) And, next time I probably should do a bit of adjusting; the shoulder on this size is just too wide for me and needs to be adjusted. But it's minor and no worse than RTW would be...
And I really do need to do a review on that pattern one of these days...
