Purple Cheetahs

Whaddaya mean?  You have never seen a purple cheetah?  Really?  Well, let me enlighten you!  This is another fabric from the Hiatchi sweater jersey collection from Fabric.com and I made another twinset.  Same patterns as before (Linda McPhee and Kwik Sew 3752)


I love these colors!  I think that this twinset looks better than the brown one (as a twinset).



Casual 'over the shoulder' pose - doesn't every photoshoot have one of these!!




Again with my plain black 'slinky' top.



More clothes for my wardrobe that will be great to wear to work.  I am one month in to my RTW fast, and I really have not missed buying clothes at all.

Again, it is interesting to see how I look in a photo and as a result I will be making changes to the cardigan (adding shaping via a centre back seam) and making shorter skirts.  But for now, I have a few outfits and my 'Twotoast Private Collection' is beginning to take hold in my closet!!

I think that I have pretty much satiated my 'quick and dirty' sewing, although I do have three more Hiatchi lengths to sew up, and I am looking forward to utilizing the knowledge gained from my recent alterations classes.  Watch this space!
