I realize a couple aren’t in the collage, but the links are comprehensive. Towards the end I was giving myself a hard time not adapting patterns for knockoffs. With the realities of being uber-pregnant and then having a newborn, I realize I need to let myself off the hook for that. Besides, looking back over my progress, I’m surprised to see that I was looking to RTW influnces for the majority of the project, and that was certainly a goal of mine.
Favorite: it’s a toss-up between the ginger snap henley and the green zebra-striped CAbi gather tee. They both just turned out to be pretty shirts.
Moving on: I have lots to think about in terms of color and form. My current stash is not serving me well towards those ends, and I’m trying to squeeze that lemon dry until I can replenish with some birthday fabric. For sure, when I find a gorgeous jersey, I’m jumping on the Burdastyle 2-2013-127 bandwagon–a pattern I’m almost certain will be a best of 2013 pattern.
