February 2013

I actually bought the pattern for this suit in 2008, almost 5 years ago. I had only really been sewing for a year or so, and hadn't done much with regular commercial patterns at that point, and was looking for projects to increase my skills.  I don't even know why, really, I picked this particular suit, except that I love outfits with matching hats.  And the 50's suits were just so prim and proper, which is the exact opposite of me.  Maybe I thought I could fool people?

Knitted with Lion Brand Homespun yarn. Oct 9 2012 - Jan 25, 2013. Knitted in pieces - front, back, sleeves, hood. Front and back were attached using 3 needle bindoff at shoulder seams; other seams were sewn. Hoody was added on using pick up and knit; cuff of hood was also done using pick up and knit.

The pictures aren't a very high quality; I took them quickly while getting ready to go to work the morning I finished it. I was late to work, but I did wear the hoody. It was super warm! :)
