Kwik Sew and a Greyson

Don't go falling off your chair now, but I have some sewing to show. Don't get too excited, it's nothing fancy but a simple dress from an old Kwik Sew dress pattern I had lingering in my pattern box that I picked up from an Op shop a couple of years ago. Luckily the person who owned it before me was apparently the same size because they had already cut all the pieces out.

Really it's not see-through, but this was the only spot I found I could photograph without a packing box in the way... gah to moving.

Isn't the fabric pretty? I had just enough in my stash... now if only those warm days would come back, isn't it supposed to be summer now?

I also finished off a jumper for Liam using a pattern on Ravelry called "Greyson". This Rustic wool from Bendigo started life as a Hemlock Ring blanket but after I spotted a mistake right back at the begining which I KNEW would drive me crazy every time I looked at it, I ripped it back and instead made this jumper for Liam for next year. It apparently needs to be made "un-itchy" so it's headed for the wash before it goes into his box for winter next year.

A great pattern and comes with instructions for a range of plys for 0-10 years so we will get a bit of use out of this basic pattern yet. Ravelry link here.

...back to the boxes...

nice work! I think that's the same tank pattern I have made for myself. Love it (and your fabric is lovely!)

Good work, and whilst packing up to move!

Pop the jumper in the freezer to unitch it, apparently works... all the mums with anti itch requiring kidlets at school did this last winter for their school jumpers... how, not sure, but it worked!
