Subject: Pattern for shrug/wrap/shaw/ cape? Date: 6/12/10 7:17 PM

Hi,

I need something that can look dressy. It's going over a nice dress.

The fabric is going to be some faux persian lamb.

This can probably be self drafted. If I could get up the courage. Thanks so much.

You should see if any of the wraps in Wild Ginger's free Wild Things accessory program would work for what you want.

I just made one and here is a link to free patterns.

I also make Mcalls 5006 and liked that too. Both were great but ultimately I liked the set in sleeve. The pattern in the link was interesting in that it coaches you thru making your own pattern and it worked beautfully for me.

Also found McCall's 3880 has a selection that looks dressy. And McCall's 3033

I don't really make mistakes ... I create "learning opportunities"! Murphy says: The better you match the thread to the fabric, the more likely you will need to rip some stitches out! I spend more quality time with my seamripper than I like ...
Yes, I DO love fabric!!

There was an article in Threads a few years ago. It is a good article, and really easy to draft your own pattern. I will look when I have a chance for the issue number.

Here's one from Hot Patterns and a tute from Sewing Divas. I've done a couple that are similar but I can't find the links. I'll keep looking.

Here's her second version in a heavier fabric.

Hope this helps!

You have all been a great help.

After receiving my fabric, it looks like it would be great in one of those capes from the MCCalls patterns.

That is not the direction I expected to go, tho it was in mind.

It was great to hear about the other resources available, too. The websites and blogs.

I'll post a review when I'm done with it. Thanks again.

Right now I'm comparing sources for the microtex 75/11 needles and silk thread the fabric vendor suggested for sewing with this faux lamb velvet. Like always, I'm hoping the result will be worth all this "trouble". Mine and yours.
