Me-Made-March Day 1


Yeah, it must be crazy hair day, too.  I didn’t realize it was so crazy until I saw the pics.  Photography is courtesy of T. 

Handmade Items:

-Boyfriend Cardigan, details below

-Lace Cami

The Boyfriend Cardigan





Some details:



Fabric Used: Polyester/Lycra sweater knit.  This was surprisingly nice to be all poly.  Yeah, I’m a fabric snob.

Pattern Notes:

I wanted a raglan sleeve, loose fitting cardigan, that didn’t look like a bag on me.  I used S2288 as a base and made lots of modifications to get the look I wanted.  Overall, it’s pretty much as I envisioned it and I’m very happy with the outcome. You won’t get this look using the pattern because I made a lot of changes, but I do recommend it.  It’s a good looser style raglan cardigan pattern. 

You might have noticed some changes in my sewing space.  I moved in January so I have a new sewing area.  Plus I have a new addition as well-  my new dressform!  I’m so in love with her and doesn’t she make my clothes looks so much better.  She’s from Roxy and I plan on writing a review soon.




  1. I love this outfit! I had to go back and read your post on how you made the cami.

  2. LOVE this outfit and you are rockin' the hair! I just order a dressform and I can't wait to get it!

  3. Thanks for the comments, guys. And Candice I'm sure you will love your new dressform. Be sure to post and let us see it.
