I did NOT intend to make an outfit, but yay for unplanned beauty!!! Lightweight dress and lacy leg warmers for the win!
I'm not usually into simpler dresses/outfits, but for some reason, I always love to make a Roller Skate Dress! Designed by Oliver and S, it is for REAL only two pattern pieces!!! Well, it is for ME, as I like to make the version without the neck piece. I did that the first time I made it, but I'm not sure I'd ever do it again. Just keepin' it real, yo.
|Awww, favorite smile!|
|NOT an optial illusion...there is a wrinkle there from the sewing job, LOL|
Not anything exciting to say about the pattern itself, other than it's awesomely simple and cute - so many ways to make it fun, though I'm always boring and don't get jazzy ;)
Next up are the Queen Bee Leg Warmers, designed by Jackie Vlcek of Luna Grey Fiber Arts (her FB page). I bought it as a kit, along with her yarn. I used Aspen Sport in the Sugarplum color way, and it is SUCH a pretty color! I hadn't knit Camden leg warmers in SO long, and I was glad to whip these up.
The pattern is well-written and crazy simple, just a six-round repeat. The kit is still available - you should TOTALLY go for it! It was my first time using Jackie's yarn, and I'm glad I had the chance to. The yarn is richer than it appears in the photos; pops of iridescent purple come through in certain lights - super lovely!
|These are so fun! (and yes, that poor end is peaking out the bottom!)|
And a week or two in the life of!!!
