Instant Gratification!

After big projects, I usually like to do really easy ones. You know, to "cleanse my palette". I made both of these in an afternoon... just that easy!

Can you tell I'm ready for Fall?

Simplicity 2603 - Cardi Wrap

Fabric: Sonia Rykiel sweater knit (72% poly/23% rayon/5% spandex) from Textile Fabrics in Nashville, TN

This fabric was great to work with and it feels amazing on! Very rarely have I seen many sweater knits that contain spandex. This is a great thing. It'll keep it from stretching out of shape.
I sewed this on the serger. I didn't hem it, because I thought that would add bulk. I just left the edges serged. I cut the large and added 3" to the length. And I think the sleeve cuffs are pretty cool as well. Here are all of the ways I plan to wear this:

Something sparkly and shiny for a night out!

Wanted a cute, sparkly top for a night out and this fit the bill! It was beyond quick! I cut the size medium, which is slightly big in the shoulders. Or maybe it's just supposed to hang that way. I also sewed this on the serger and didn't bother to do any hemming. I just made sure I cut it nice and evenly.
Surprisingly it IS bra-friendly. I was initially concerned with how low the back would be. I'll be making this one again.
