Happy Wednesday WOYWWers :-) I'm not showing my desk this week as I've not really done anything much at all apart from sewing, mainly altering stuff for DD. I am showing a cardi that I've altered. I bought it some time ago from a shop called All Saints, in Manchester. It's called a Pirate Cardigan for some reason :-/ if anyone has any idea why I'd love to know. It seemed ok when I bought it apart from the sleeves being about 6" too long, seriously! but I soon discovered that the sleeves were rather tight and I had to drag them up each time I wore it. I finally found some lovely black stretch lace at £1 per metre so cut up the sleeves and inserted some lace. I also chopped loads off - just over 6"!! and put some of the lace at the bottom of the sleeves. I've made some flowers for the t-shirt I dyed the other week, not sewn on yet - do I need 3? Also not sure about the 'stem' may just use beads or sequins. Also showing some net for a tutu I'm in the middle of making for youngest granddaughter - it's more of a turquoise than showing here.
If you'd like to join in this phenomenon called WOYWW pop over to lovely Julia's whose brainwave this was and then dive in, it's all good fun ;-)
