Drapey Cardigan

Made 3, but love this one the most.

Shirt #3

> My favorite. Very comfy and I didn't have to alter it. Weird thing was that it was the first shirt I made!

Shirt #2

> A bit too colorful. Probably won't wear it out often

Update:  Goodwill-ed

Shirt # 1

> A little tight and I used scraps so the front is from 3 different pieces

Back Plaid Peony

Who's that girl? It's Jess!... (Erin)

Also bag on door is a hops holder for Greg's beer brewing. We are a crafty family!!

Plaid Peony

3.5 hours after fabric was cut!
I am proud of me!
I love the pockets and I matched the plaid on the bodice front to skirt bottom and back bodice left to right.

Back skirt left to right was pretty poorly matched and my bottom hem is uneven. Also itchy, so I might line with cotton lining.

Back pic to follow!
