What started out as four amazing fabrics in a remnant bin
are now being created into winter clothes for me.
1. orange knit - long sleeve winter top, cost: $8.50
2. bronze/brown knit - top or leggings (if it's long enough), cost: $7.20
3. Black - a skirt, but maybe cushions for my lounge now?, cost: $8.00
4. Grey/black wool - front panel in a winter jacket, cost $12.50 (completed)

Next up on the sewing list was my orange long sleeve top, here is how I cut out my patterns...by lay my favourite tops out or two in this case and cut around with my roller cutter. No purchased pattern required in here! as I watched my mother do the very same thing through out my childhood, I must have picked up a thing or too from watching.
finished product, from the front - I added a pocket to break up the orange, thinking about adding a bit more length in the front too, this will balance out the tail length.
back view, and Summah photo booming....(oops! bombing, mind and hands not communicating to well today :) )
If my daughter is going to photo bomb, why not get a decent photo of us both?! (at this point I noticed the neighbour was cleaning his camper van just above me... awkward!)
Off to make my leggings now.
