Cowl Neck Top

Yesterday I decided to make something for the summer as a way of getting out of the winter doldrums.  This winter seems endless as does the snow.
So, I decided to make McCalls pattern 6963. Because I was using fabric leftover from a dress I made 2 years ago, I made the short sleeved version.  The fabric was a very stretchy knit as called for in the directions.  In effect, I really was making a muslin to test fit, etc.
The pattern went together pretty easily.  I serged most of it.  Overall, I like the top but I will go down one size on the neckline for the next one I make.  And I will make another cowl neck top!!

The Jeannine 2 Zipper Wristlet

If you like wristlets, pouches or whatever you want to call them, then I think you will love the Jeannine 2 Zip Wristlet.
Measuring about 7.75" across X 5" high, the Jeannine Wristlet offers double storage space because of its 2 zippered sections.  Because the strap is detachable, the wristlet can be carried as a wristlet or just tossed into a larger bag to!hold cosmetics, charhing cords, etc.
The wristlet is shown in the elegant Belle of the South prequilted fabric.
Price: $20.
