Seamwork Magazine

Tuesday, March 3, 2015

I finally got around to sewing this past weekend.  I really wanted to get started right after the new year ... Oh well.  I am glad that I busted out my machine and got me some MOJO!!!

I subscribed naturally to the on-line magazine Seamwork, when it first came out.  Ummmm... hello... this is their 4th issue.  The first one came out in December and I had plans to make so many things. 

Better late than never, I'd say. 

So without further ado .... I give to you, Oslo

 This cardigan is from the first issue.  I am so glad I made it finally.  It's described as beginner and versatile.  Definitely fits the bill for my style and wardrobe.
The fabric is a stretch sweater knit, and it is cozy and pretty.  layered with a long sleeve underneath, it's perfect for colder days.  In the spring and summer nights, it's perfect with a tank.
I made size small and kept the largest size length.  I think for spring it's the perfect length for my needs ... covering my bum!!! 
Definitely see another one in a really cozy warm fabric for next winter.  I will definitely lengthen the sleeves.  I didn't measure this time, and they are a little short for my arms.
I'm a happy girl!
Next on my list to try:  The T-shirt from this last issue, and if I am brave ... the camisole from the lingerie issue. 
HAPPY SEWING, xoxoxo Lisa

 Come join the fun ...
