Cute! Smiley The pink trim looks very nice.
By herself!?! It took four people & several days to put in a new floor at my mom's house. Maybe I should've called your stepmother-in-law....

I'm making my Corinne out of cotton. Since this dress isn't something I'm going to wear everyday, it should hold its shape enough for me.
This is my first cotton garment (bath mitts don't count Smiley ) so I'm not too familiar with its longevity. 
I'm about 10 inches into the dress. I changed the lace pattern to a little diamond motif. It's cute, so far. I'm so excited to finish this & wear it. Indiana is finally becoming warm!

You're welcome  Smiley
I scrapped the corset belt in Suede. I was a couple of inches into it & realized it wasn't going to come out the way I wanted it to.  I restarted the belt in chunky green Wool-Ease, and I love it.  The patten is easier to distinguish with smoother yarn and larger needles. 
Now I just need to figure out how I'll wear a big green corset belt...

No clue.
I'm anxious to see it, even though I've yet to finish stuff from the previous issue.  Cheesy

Most of the patterns in the preview look a bit iffy.  The guitar case is a cool idea. I have a 3/4 size guitar that's currently covered with a piece of sequined fabric.  I'm too cheap to buy a proper case... but knitting one is a possibility.
I am so making a sweater for my apple. Green cotton, with an apple button. I want my coworkers to give me freakish looks when they discover my lunch wears clothing.

I only have the neckband ribbing left to finish.  I despise picking up stiches! Angry
Pre-ribbing fittings suggest it'll be a bit big... but that's why I have sisters who wear larger sizes than I do.
Otherwise, I'm happy with the way the vest has turned out.  I'll definitely be making another- with smaller needles.

Count me in! I'm using Mulberry colored Sinfonia cotton.  So far I've finished about 7 inches of the back.  I'm pleased with how it's turning out.
The yarn tends to split, and I tend not to pay attention to my knitting.  Thus one line of lace does a cute wavering bit.  I'm pretending it's intentional. Smiley

I love this issue! About an hour ago I began working on the corset portion of the cinced top.  It's going to remain a corset belt, since the entire top might look odd on me.  I'm using teal Lion Suede that's been resting in my yarn box for almost a year.
The skirt in the Louet ad is fabulous. I checked out the website- the tiers are knit in the round with sportweight linen. I'm thinking about alternating lace tiers with woven fabric.  I doubt my attention span for multiple large tiers, and the fabric would decrease the weight of the finished skirt.
Smiley Hope that helps.  I'm going to muck around with this when I'm a bit less sleepish.

Hi all! Everyone's finished vests look awesome! Smiley
I'm about nine inches into the back of Ruby.  I'm using Simply Soft in "sage" (which is really more like sea green). 
I like the giant opening in the front (at least in the pics) and I'm considering making a sweater clip-type item to hold the edges together.  In theory, it would be cute.
