I always get excited when I receive an email from Hot Patterns – last week was no exception! God, how much do I love these new patterns?!?!?!?!
I was just thinking that I’d like to make some sort of cardigan in a sweater knit – a cozy, long cardy with a ’70s feel. Along comes the Metropolitan Sweater Dress, Cardigan and Top! I LOVE the notch/split on the band – a perfect little unexpected detail.
I’ve also been looking for something different in the way of a dress so the Metropolitan Good Times Dress, Tunic & Top is a must-have for me. I want to make the dress with the placket neckline in a funky printed knit. I also love the tie-neckline which I’d leave open.
I have some wool doubleknit (with lycra!) that would be perfect for this little jacket, the Riviera Boulevard Cardigan Jacket.
And, how cool are these gauchos? They are divine, perfect for my black boots.
I can’t wait to add these to my collection!
