Last night I made a quick and easy project loosely based on the Vogue 1179 dress pattern. I was gabbing away with my Sister on the phone and failed to realize that I cut the back pattern piece twice. Wanting a comfy dress to wear to work for the next day, I just continued and made it work.
I like how big the cowl neck is and can even use it to go on my head like photographed below. The material is a t-shirt knit from Yardage Town. I think I had a little under 2 yards of it for about $7 bucks. It is so comfy to wear, it may become a night gown/house gown.
My roommie and I went to the Sia concert at the House of Blues on Monday. Despite the 21+ crowd, there was a lot of immature people attending.....or I am just becoming grumpier as I get older. Still, I am so glad I went with Brandi. She and I don't manage to get out of the house together too often, so I enjoy it whenever it happens. Sia had a lot of colorful and beautifully hideous crocheted items on stage including the banner pictured above.
She even announced that anyone with their knitting should come up on stage and sit and knit while she sang. Dang it! Brandi and I both assumed the needles would not be welcome in such a venue and therefore left ours at home!
I have plans to make this again tonight. This time I will cut the front piece, too! BTW, these shoes are the same as the black pair I have received so many compliments on. They are my $20 purchase (each pair) from Target.
