Now I can be warm and anticipate spring! (Simplicity Amazing Fit 2404)


(I am happier about this dress than I look int he picture  Undecided)

First try at leggings (McCall's 6173). The double-knit I used wasn't quite stretchy enough, I guess, because I got the dreaded 'baggy knees'. Next time, I think a pure spandex in at least half a size smaller would be prescribed.


(adjusted leggings to reduce knee-bagginess, which is my leggings pet peeve)

And a t-shirt...

That's really cute...wouldn't have guessed it was made of a wool!  Looks very well sewn also.

Love the style of the dress and the color.  Lavender is so perfect for spring.  I would never have guessed it's made out of wool.

The dress/t-shirt/leggings combo looks good, too, but I would probably have chosen a different color for the t-shirt and leggings.
