Blackwood Cardigan by Helen't Closet in modal jersey from Style Maker Fabrics

It took me a couple of weeks to purchase this pattern but I am so happy I did.  This is a style I love and the big pockets are a plus.

Vogue 1522- Mood Fabrics' Eyelet

Vogue 1522 from Mood Fabrics' cotton eyelet

When ordering fabric at Mood Fabrics, sometimes it takes me a long time to decide, just too many options and decisions.  Then there are other times, the fabric is just perfect and I cannot get it into my cart soon enough.  That is the case with this Mood Fabrics’ Nanette Lepore Cotton Embroidered Eyelet, it was so gorgeous on the computer screen and even more beautiful in person.

McCall's 7445 - Top

McCall's 7445 sweater using a beautiful Style Maker Fabrics adding a bottom band for length

A new fabric arrived at my house and I couldn't quit touching it.  This sweater knit was amazingly soft and I knew I needed to add it quickly to my winter to spring wardrobe.

McCall's 6964 - Red/Navy Stripe Knit

McCall's 6964 in Mood Fabrics' stripe knit, cut shorter and added a pocket.

Have you had one of those projects that starts in one direction and then ends up a totally different way?

Well, this  knit shirt was just that.  I had this idea from I believe a JCrew catalog, a simple stripe shirt with a pleated ruffle on the bottom, about 1-1/2" wide.

McCall's 7472 - Plaid Shirt

McCall's 7472 Shirt from Mood Fabrics' Red Tartan Plaid

One more plaid flannel shirt before spring officially comes.  I love this fabric and decided it was time to try a new shirt pattern, too.
  As you know, the Archer Shirt is my usual go-to pattern but I decided something new was due.
