Life! At times we get so carried away with other things we do things like post Sew 2012 #006 before Sew 2012 #005. Doh!
Better late than never, though I did post this on time over The Sew Weekly.
This was a spontaneous stole, when I needed something quick for the Down-under theme for The Sew Weekly. Of course being down-under already I actually needed something that was up-over! Further, I had no winter fabrics in my stash, with the possible exception of this Teddy Bear fur!
I love the shape of this stole, I drafted the pattern myself. The only thing I’m not happy with is that it’s 4″ too small, on account of not having quite enough bear fabric to warp around me! Nonetheless, if I wear it a certain way and not move much it works just fine.
I should also mention the pink satin lining on the inside… I love this fabric. It has a real silky vintage look to it, and it may well be silky – I bought it from an opshop a few months ago and have no idea what it really is.
Now please excuse me, I must buy tickets to the theatre and make my evening gown.
PS: I fully plan to share my pattern with you!
