Almost there

I've started finishing my vintage sweater and its coming together so nicely! I don't have any pictures yet because I've only sewn 1 side seam and 1 sleeve. Once I finish sewing I need to crochet an edge around the sleeves and create button holes in the back. I should be completly finished by this weekend! This is one project I've actually started and worked all the way through until finish without getting distracted by another project! I hope this will be a new trend!

Retro Inspiration

My Aunt had some left over fabric she found from a 60s party and she brought it over for my use. She knows my style! I should have enough to make a cute 60s pencil skirt with this fabric but sad to discover it doesn't quite match my lime green pumps. Posted above is best picture I could post. Its a yellow green with turquoise and not quite as shiny as it appears above.
I've found the manual for my sewing machine so hopefully I get a chance to sew this weekend. Of course I'll work on finishing an old skirt before working with this fabric.
