Yes! I made something!

Last night, I had the thought that this is becoming less of a sewing blog than a 'Hey, I'm still wearing clothes that I made ages ago' blog.

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.
