Vogue 8597 today :) It took me about 2 hours to cut out and put this together, although I have not hemmed it and I want to redo the facing on the cowl. But otherwise, I am super happy with it! It's actually a dark navy color, the camera lightened it up quite a bit. The whole thing was done up on my trusty serger, which really made it quick to sew. I cannot recommend this pattern enough!
Next up is this purse pattern (I'm going to do the version on the top left). I am desperate for a new bag. When I was cleaning my sewing closet I realized I have a ton of this Amy Butler fabric, so I decided to use it right away. I could never figure out what to use as a lining with it as the colors are quite different, so I'm just going to line the bag in the same fabric! I've never done that before, but I think it will be an interesting look. I'm hoping to cut this out and sew it up over the weekend!
