Choir Wardrobe 6/26/16
Navy blue Sewing Workshop Plaza pants, in tropical wool, Jalie 2566 T in rayon/lycra jersey and Jalie 2919 Pleated Front Cardi in a different rayon/lycra jersey, and a couple of random pieces of fushcia/hot pink fabric fashioned into oblong scarves (one has mylar dots...).
The reason I made the navy cardi is that I felt like the fabric was too sheerish for a T shirt, which was really what I intended to make (a replacement for the T I'm wearing, actually, as it is not a high-quality knit and is losing its shape somewhat). But, making lemonade out of lemons, I decided to make the cardi instead...the sheerish-ness doesn't matter a whit in the top layer.
One of the best choices I've made in a while. I've worn and worn that blue cardi, and it's only about 5 months old.
I'm actually glad it turned out too sheer for a T...
