The cardigan is McCalls 6168 from a few years ago and the jeans are Tina Givens Holly Pants, that I mentioned here. The white top is a Seamingly Smitten Draped Top and I love it! I've made three or four of these, they are perfect under a cardi. And the lace peaking underneath? This is my 'new best thing'! Let me tell you a little more.
A few months ago I was told about a website called 'Farmhouse Frocks' - lovely Lagenlook styles made by Amish ladies in Ohio. Very much my style. Anyway, I filed this away and promptly forgot about it until a post popped up on Facebook and I took another look. Oh boy, what a treat! There are a number of styles that I like the look of, especially the 'Shirt Extender' and I thought how well it would go with my wardrobe.
For the basic body of my version I used Kwik Sew 2766 an OOP nightgown pattern. It is quite a simple sleeveless nightgown/petticoat and I cut it mid hip length. The pattern is designed for wovens (on the bias) and knits, I used some very soft oatmeal coloured cotton jersey and some matching cream stretch lace for the trim at the bottom. The jersey is actually a fitted sheet that never really fit our bed, so some great re-purposing! After making up the top I pleated it and serged the lace on the botton edge, and done1 For the neckline and armhole edging I used lingerie lace trim at 80% of the measured edge of the openings and it is lovely!
I left the bottom edge of the lace raw after cutting it with my rotary cutter so that it is nice and straight.
I have already cut out a black version and a (OK, and a couple of) white ones too! So not only will I be warm as the weather gets cooler, but I'll also have some pretty lace peeking through my layers as well!
