Lately I have developed a new obsession for classic fabrics. Unfortunately my fabric store only sells the most horrible prints that you can imagine, so I can't really do anything with it.
I am very successful in procrastinating which leads to sewing projects like these.
But let's start with a pair of shorts that I made about 5 years ago. I think they might be the 3rd or 4th item I've ever sewn. So they are very wonky and messy but if you cover the waistband with a sweater or a top I think they are absolutely adorable ^^ I wear them so often and I never shared them with you guys. Here they are. I think the fabric is some kind of cord. I can't really tell to be honest..
With my new sweater.
The left button is for the closure, the right button just for decoration. There is a zipper too. It looks so funny, I could never wear it like this ^^
I absolutely looove the loose fit!
Next item is a sweater that I completed a few days ago. It was the first time that I used some kind of border. I think it's a really sweet girly sweater. And it's super warm which makes me look forward to winter.

Black shimmery houndstooth fabric for the collar.
Ok last item I bought this fabric about one year ago. At first I wanted to make a cape but then I decided to do a winter vest instead. I didn't have any fabric for lining at home when I made it so it has to stay like that. I haven't added any buttons or closures yet. I might in the future At the moment it works with a belt and a safety pin.

I love that you can play with the collar.
Now I gotta go to class. Let me know what you think. Sorry for the exaggerated amount of pictures
