cashmere : a challenge


I was digging through one of the piles of wool in my workspace this week when I found a bag with the remains of 3 cashmere sweaters in it.


I had previously used the arms from these sweaters to make socks and I decided that this week I'd use up the rest of them too.

I started with the cute argyle one.


I turned it into a little skirt for my daughter.  I lined it with a brown t-shirt, also from the supply pile, and gave it a little lettuce edge.




Cute and cashmere?  My model approves.

More cashmere to come...

I said it before but I'll say it again....you can throw on a ripped up t-shirt on this darling and she can be a runway model And those Jackie O shades!!

Oh, yea, the skirt is cute too....how about making her some cashmere leggings? Seeing her in tights in the snow is making my legs shiver. Brrrr.....

You don't need a serger to make this. The lettuce edge is just zig-zagged while stretching a little.

I love this skirt! Makes me want to sew something for my granddaughters. The t-shirt lining is the perfect finish for it.
