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!

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

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

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...

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.

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

I love it! I never would have chosen this pattern for myself but your review has made me want it.

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

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!

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

Great looking jacket/shrug. Like the fabric, have fun at your party.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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