My take on Adeline

Mariel showed me this girl's blog: Adeline Rapon. Well, as it is now my newest favorite blog, I have taken it upon myself to personally stalk her like crazy. Adeline (yes I am on first name basis) posted this sweater yesterday.

I really really liked this whole bow-on-the-back-of-a-sweater deal she was doing. I also realized I had just finished my homework and I had late opening the next day. So I set out to make my version of her bow-on-the-back-of-a-sweater. Only I'm using a tank top because I don't have a big white sweater and I'm using blue and white striped fabric for the bow.

It's still too cold to wear it outside on its own and considering all the big stuff is in the back, I am just going to have to save it for later.

PS I spent 30 minutes during my free period looking for a fabric store and once I did I went in and they didn't even have lace. So I bought chiffon to make something (you'll see later!!) THAT WAS 13 DOLLARS PER YARD. I do not know if this is a good price or not but it seemed ridiculously overpriced. But I wouldn't know.

PPS I just realized I did bows two posts ago...I was debating between one huge heart or a bow. Huh. I might just go and make myself a heart-shirt.
