A few years ago, a friend of mine had a Swiss girlfriend who looooved sparkle – everything had to be mit Glitz! Last weekend I was whipping up some new casual tops (I just cleaned out my closet and am in need!) and came across two sparkley iron ons that I had purchased at Ben Raymond’s a long time ago. Sometimes, I am inexplicably drawn to glittery things and so I bought these stars with no clue as to what I’d ever use them for.
No one could argue the fact that most knit tops don’t have a very long lifespan. This is not investment dressing, to be sure. I decided to live a little and pulled out my favorite pattern (out-of-print Kwik-Sew 2643), two gorgeous rayon/lycra fabrics (the green from www.emmaonesock.com and the beige from www.casualelegancefabric.com ) and heat-sealed those stars on before I could change my mind. You know what? I like them! Sometimes it’s fun to try something different.
