Just Something I Made

I mentioned that I made something last week and then didn't know what to do with it. It was a sweater dress. I like it...I think. Maybe. I learned something anyways: I don't do heavy materials. As far as wearing them I mean, sewing them is no problem. I loved the color and the neckline/buttons were really cool which is what drew me to this sweater in the first place:

And, of course, cozy sweaters always sound like a good idea. They aren't. Okay, they are, just not on me.

I think I'm going to take this to a consignment shop because I won't be wearing it and I don't feel like it fits into the style I want for my shop. Which won't be opening today by the way. I have a few other projects I need to complete (um, get started on) for gifts and then the sun had to go and shine down so I'm putting off opening the shop until next Friday. I'm crossing my fingers on that one. I've only been working while Adrian is sleeping so it really limits my time unless I don't sleep at night...and I really value my sleep! Also, I put my striped, navy dress on hold at least until my shop is up and running!

Can't wait for your shop to open!

Me neither! (...about your shop opening.) And, this sweater dress turned out cute. But I know what you mean about it not feeling like 'you'. I worry about that now that I've been into ordering vintage clothes/shoes from Etsy. I always worry that they won't be what I expected and end up not being something that's 'me'.
