For those of you that follow my Flickr 365, this will be repetitive, but oh well.
I have a few items of clothing that I never wear and have sat in my closet forever. I can't seem to part with them for one reason or another. Enter this sweater:
I love how I look less than enthused in this pic. It wasn't intentional, but it really does capture the "blah-ness" of this sweater. I love the color, the buttons and the tight knit but never wore it since it was so boring. (Funny thing, Tracey bought this same sweater without knowing I had. She already got rid of hers but now wishes she had kept it so I could do the same with hers. At least, I think that's what she said. I could be totally making that up.)
I finally threw it in the wash last night and was seriously afraid that is was going to fall apart. Ha. The "flowers" frayed a bit, but I expected that since I didn't do anything to prevent that. Still looks super cute though.
I also whipped up a skirt.
I used an old skirt that I made as a guide and just winged it. That's also why the waistband is covered. It's not pretty, friends. It's not finished very well, but I wanted to wear it to work that night. Hee. I am so impatient.
Seeing all these sewing projects (and seeing Carrie's) is making me want to get out my sewing machine STAT. Too bad it's already packed up.
