Now that's just adorable! No aging hooker here, maybe whimsical and elegant.

So, so cute!! I love it Sue!! I was going to get this pattern awhile ago, but never did, but will now that I've seen yours. I agree that yours is cuter than theirs. I wouldn't have thought of using that CE fabric, either, but really like it. Thanks for the review!

That fabric is wonderful for this pattern. Sorry it was such a PITA. I'm sure you look great wearing it and that dress is cute too.

Your top is 10 times cuter than the ones on the pattern envelope. It looks just perfect over the dress. Thanks for the tip on the button made of beads -- what a clever idea.

Darn, I wish I had this pattern! I have the red version of this shaggy dog fabric -- what a great use for it. Have fun tonight!

Just think how much cheaper and easier this was to sew than to knit. Even though I know how to knit and crochet, I tell you I'm having a heyday sewing knits and no one can tell the difference. I'll put this pattern on my wish list.

WOW!! Fabulous shrug and fabric. I have this pattern too but am afraid of sweater knits. Thanks for all your tips. Have fun !!

That's adorable - very 70's English punk. All you need is your short spiky boots and tartan mini and you're ready to rock!

I'd love to see this neckline on you, any chance of a photo with you wearing it? It's a darling sweater!

Oh, that's so pretty. I was so not interested in this pattern until I saw your jacket!

Love your shrug! (Also, love what I can see of your dress!) Thanks for the review! I'm really getting the urge to try some of the sweater knits -- they all look so comfy-cozy.

What a gorgeous little jacket! I love the fabric.

What a perfect little jacket. DD needs something to wear over her new cocktail dress, so I'll show her this one. It's great! Note to self: avoid "aging hooker" patterns...

Wow. NIce job. I would never have considered that because like CLF said, "No agaiin hooker here". It looks great.

Very cute and you have the shape to wear this flatteringly! Me, I'd look like Fuzzy Wuzzy. :-)

That is just gorgeous. I have been eyeing off that pattern. I think I might just have to get it! I have some blue eyelash fabric, and a blue dress already made....better go and see if they match!
