Let the Pictures Speak!

The garments in this post have been featured in their own respective posts, so I'm just going to let the pictures speak...

First the Butterick 5760 Cardigan, blogged about here.  

Pictures of me wearing it along with Vogue 1250 top and the wool crepe brown pants ~ all are part of The City in Winter Wardrobe.






The Vogue 1250 top was blogged about here.

This is one of my favorite summer dress patterns so it was about time that I shortened it and made it into a top.






This outfit is a holdover from a few weeks ago but this was my first opportunity to get pictures of me actually wearing it...and I have to tell you I was surprised by the weight and warmth of the cardigan.  Since this is my fourth make using this pattern, I never bothered to try it on during the construction process.  This combo is professional yet sassy and will keep me warm yet not so warm that I won't wear it...essentially it's perfect!

...as always more later!

  3. I love that cardigan. I hadn't realized it was that long. You could almost make it into a dress at that length. Love the 1250 as a top. g

  9. This is a great outfit! The pants and top are very figure flattering. Your waist looks defined, but still comfy. The taper on the pants is just right too.

  15. Love that cardigan. And what a great idea to take a favourite dress and turn it into a favourite top. I liked the twist on the ivory blouse that you gave to Vogue 1250. You're so very creative! :)

  19. Did you say that you are not a model? I don't believe that. The modeling in this post and your last post is awesome. The outfits are awesome, too. They look so comfortable and chic. I suspect that you will wear them a lot.
