Skirt from thrifted skirt

Hotpatterns had a free pattern ( via a 8 gore skirt with elastic waist and a simple hem, fast and easy. I bought a skirt in a thrift shop that was kind of dirndl style, lots of fabric that I used.
The skirt is really easy to sew and will look great in different fabrics, I´m thinking of adding pockets and making it into a six gore skirt, but not tonight, I´m knitting Estonian lace, a new one, the rusty one is finished and blocked and will be published one of these days

Jazz progress

Think Pink!

This picture was in the correct position when I uploaded it! So please turn your head!
It´s also Onion 2031, red chambray

I did the elastic both on shoulders and arms a little different and I have not ( yet...) added any thing Odd Mollyish to this

The button is the same as in Hannas X-mas blouse

I also started to knit a Cedar Leaf Shawlette, download from Ravelry, I´m using a cotton/ linen blend yarn

Onion 2031

I spent friday in Copenhagen and bought two of the latest Onionpatterns. This is one of them

Since my plan is to sew more denim I went to Stof och stil here in town and bought 10 oz denim that I turned into a dress, flatfelled seams and topstitching and it looks loke this:

It turned out to be a little to big at the neckline so I cut a V to take away some fabric. I think I would like to wash this before using it and after finishing it I went back for red chambray and I+ve almost finished a blouse too from this pattern.
