A few years ago you could barely move for people making the Cynthia Rowley 2406 dress.
A lovely dress. I love the slits in the sleeves and having a raglan cut makes it a bit less dressy and something I’d get a lot of wear out of. Unfortunately, my one and only attempt at it a few years ago involved the very wrong fabric. I was really quite annoyed with myself, especially since I’d worked so hard to figure out the hieroglyphics involved in making those damn sleeves. In the end, I put it away and tried not to think about it.
I guess I must have a short memory because I came back to it and made this.
It’s basically the Cynthia Rowley modified into a top, the bottom hem is just elastic in a casing.
Despite the bra-flashiness of the back vent, I kept it true to the design. I even self-faced the sleeves – I know, why bother facing jersey? – To preserve a bit of mystery, I usually wear a bandeau under this, or pin it with a Spacewasters badge.
I haven’t been posting much lately and that’s because I haven’t actually been sewing a lot. My boyfriend has just started a year long contract in Saudi Arabia so the last month has been all about getting prepared for that. It’s only been a week since he left and I already miss him terribly.
But I guess I get to play at being crazy cat lady for a year and I’m consoling myself with uplifting songs about missing people.
