Yes! I made something!
So I stayed up late and made a top in the current choir colors.
It's a stretch lace that I bought because it was black and burgundy, a combo that is worn most every November. We didn't wear it in November this year, but it's the nominal color for December.
I don't know if it'll work for me to wear it for Choir, but I might wear it for Christmas or New Year's. With a Jalie 967 tank cami under it, of course.
Took me a couple of hours, all told, but I didn't stick with it solidly. And I had a little trouble with the hem; I used a zig-zag that was too wide the first time and it tunnelled up pretty badly. A little unstitching and a much narrower zig-zag and it was much nicer.
There's a wee bit of sparkle in the fabric; it won't be warm but, hey, this is Alabama. And it will be kinda festive.
