Summer's Still Here but Winter is Coming

Second time making this pattern, Butterick 5637. The first time I made it I didn't have enough fabric so it wasn't as full and I didn't line it so it became a "house dress".

I really like this version. I had enough fabric and I really like the fullness and it has pockets!

I make notes in my database when I make a pattern I wish I had read them before making this version. I used the C-D cup pattern piece and I really should have used the A-B but I took it in and it's fine now.

This is the first version, it's at least 10 years old and the fabric is some type of gauze. I really should have lined it but it was gifted fabric so I'm going to call it a wearable muslin.

A little knitting. I started with a sweater pattern and decided to change it to a vest. It would have been way easier to just use a vest pattern but hey that's just me and it came out okay.


I will probably wear it with a shirt until it gets really cold. I have some yarn left so I might make some fingerless mitts.

 I'm so thankful for my hobbies now that my children are grown. My nest may be empty but my hobbies keep me fulfilled.
