finished objects


in january, i finally FINISHED some lurking projects, for myself to wear, like another Built by You tunic (simplicity 3964), my first with sleeves! i am loving this thing and have barely taken it off since completion. i also added my new favorite detail: cutaway pockets. every garment should have them, really... also, i remembered a very useful item that i have had since college, but completely forgotten about: my TRIPOD!!! no more one-armed mirror pics!

this is my other new fave outfit! kim and i developed this cozy sweatshirt tunic idea one sunday afternoon (i made her one too, while she re-organized my studio/living room). i had been needing something i could wear over my gym clothes when i go to the Y, and then proceed directly to brunch and not look like such a complete dork. i mean, i am always a dork, but gym clothes make me feel extra dorky....

oh yeah, and i finished my Built by You corduroy PANTS!!! (simplicity 4110) this is really exciting. i've actually even worn them several times. crazy.

this is one of the new style of tops i made for fall, with different printed yokes (hard to see in this photo, but the yoke is a woven floral-print wool). there are two longer ones in my etsy shop right now, should your interest be piqued...

lovely creations, cal!
you inspired me a while back to make some built by wendy pants, too. of course mine aren't finished yet, so maybe now you'll inspire me to finish them...

You're inspiring me to finish up some of my own personal projects that got put aside for the holiday gift making. These pieces and pics are great--plus I love the tights!
