Faux wrap for a faux lady

Pattern: Simplicity 1653

Size: 14, curvy

Fabric: Linen jersey from Mason's

You may know by now that I have quite the love affair going on with Amazing Fit patterns so this was an easy choice when I decided I could do with a simple, but nice-for-work, jersey dress. I bought the fabric first as I knew I had to have it - it feels wonderful and cool, drapey, but also quite structured (that's the linen, I guess), and the muted colours are so fun, yet elegant.

Flower power

Pattern: Sirdar 8890
Size: Bust 36/38
Yarn: King Cole Smooth DK; Aqua

I've definitely got the knitting bug again and I've remembered how great it is to have a more portable craft, and one that can be done whilst watching things! This top has accompanied all sorts of visual delights, including an entire new season of Arrested Development (in one sitting - madness).
