How Annie spent her snow day!
(By the way, they now have to make up two days of school!)
Annie’s 20-something cousin gave Annie the center dress because she didn’t really like it.
Annie started by chopping off the sleeves and converting the neck to a jewel neckline.
She toyed with adding a sequin sash but settled for accessorizing with pearls and a leather belt.
With the belt worn high, the lace-covered knit dress has a tailored look.
With the belt worn low, the dress has a bit of a schoolgirl/flapper look.
Now her cousin wants the dress back!
Speaking of Annie, we were very thrilled when Vogue Patterns contacted us to include a photo of Annie’s coat in their “What are You Sewing” feature! You can read about Annie’s coat on this post. This issue of Vogue Patterns has quite a few interesting patterns and articles!
Finally, congratulations to Erin Wallace of Dropped Stitches, winner of the $45 CSN gift certificate!
