Technically I haven’t washed this yet, so it’s not 100% done, but it’s like 95% done, so I figure it counts.

I made this and the dress underneath it as part of The Self-Made Wardrobe, which is a project I’m doing where I only wear clothes I’ve made for an entire year. Yep. So I’m spending this month frantically making clothes, and I’ll start wearing them June 1st. Which is in 2 weeks. eep! You can check out and follow the project here.

Remember remember!
The price of Shawl Geometry 1 and Shawl Geometry 3 will go up this evening, so if you’ve been thinking about getting either of those books, now would be a good time to get them. Shawl Geometry 1 is currently $23 and will go up to $25, & Shawl Geometry 3 is currently $17 and will go up to $20.

Here are the links:
