Choir Wardrobe 06.18.17
I pulled this very intense turquoise out of the closet...it's not exactly the shade specified, but, well, it's one we've worn before and I hoped I wouldn't be the only one stretching the envelope a little.
I wasn't. There were at least 5 others there today with this bright turquoise color (and the photo, leaning slightly to yellow, is not showing the color very accurately. But you get the idea.)
It's the Jalie 2919 Pleated Cardigan and Vest; I think it was the 4th or 5th iteration and it is the ONLY one I've done with the pleats on the outside...which is actually the way it's supposed to be made. Up to this point, I put them inside because I misread the instructions.
When I realized I'd been doing it backwards, I felt really foolish and the next one I made the right way out.
But I found that I much prefer it with the pleats turned in. Takes visual weight off. Really. So the one or two I've made since then have had the pleats inside...on purpose....
Modified La Fred Daphne pants (I added a waistband and pockets, then put the zipper in the pocket)from black stretch twill really need a bit of heel to not bunch up so much, but, well, I was not in a heel-wearing mode today, so they're bunchy. Guess I could've rolled them, given the current style, but I didn't think about it.
It's a RTW scoop neck sweater...from the old Coldwater Creek. So you know that wasn't fresh, either.
As I was puttering about in this cardigan today, I suddenly remembered I had a sizeable chunk of fabric left over. Probably going to see that made up into one of the TNTs sometime soon...lol. Once I find it.
