I mentioned that I was inspired by Winnie from Scruffybadgertime to make the Jenna cardi by Muse patterns. I have made this cardi a couple of times (here and here), and of all of them, the black and silver one is my favourite partly because of the longer length, and in retrospect, I should have made this one a bit longer. Oh well.
Please note that my teeth haven’t disappeared, I think my tongue has made an appearance!
I haven’t acquired a new pet, sadly. I have been dogsitting Megan’s (from Meggipeg) dog, Truffles. He is extremely sweet and quite funny, keeping me amused for hours.
I did a good job with my pattern matching on this one, even though I made it on a camping (glamping) trip.
I bought the fabric in Potters about three years ago. It was a half price remnant and I managed to get this cardi plus another top out of it, bringing the price of each to $2.50. The buttons on this cardi are out of my stash and match absolutely perfectly – sometimes I get lucky!
I’ve worn the cardi several times already, and the keen eyed will notice that I took photos on two different occasions.
Details: Jenna Cardi by Muse patterns, made from a remnant of unknown fibre content bought at Potter Textiles. Buttons were bought in an op shop and I seem to have rather a lot of them.
I am also wearing my brown Nettie, Vogue 8859 (brown trousers), StyleArc Elle (black trousers), and the rather odd shoes are Sorel boots – so comfortable.
And an action shot of Truffles and me!
