New Threads FRIDAY!

Sea & Sky Cardi

After a trip to the button box and a warm soapy wash, the cardi finally hits the runway! Even though the weatherman says it’s going to be, drumroll please, 85 frickin’ degrees today (I might hide a way from it, it’s so unusual) like everyone in the Big Windy says, “If you don’t like the weather, wait 10 minutes.” OR, in this case, a few days, and then it’s back in the 60’s, and Cardi Wearin’ Time.

MODS: I made this Basic Chic Hoodie with 3/4 length sleeves and used the lace pattern all the way around for cuffs and I did a 2×2 rib instead of a hood, no buttonhholes or buttons on the pockets. Easy peasy.

Seeing it up on the mannequin, in its finished pose, it strikes a rather Oriental air. The sleeves & lace combo especially mimic robes and jackets I’ve seen on Chinese textiles. Although my photographer (moi) has lost the muse for portraits in the current crib set-up (no room) I’ll find a friend to take a picture of this modeled at some point. :)
