Outfit Along 2014 : Bright Star Camera Flash!

 It is so so hot this summer. Of course the year we move away from the Air Conditioning.

I did it! Just barely but I did it!  3 broken zippers and one almost completely frogged sweater later I am done! 2014 Outfit along is done and dusted. I love the idea of the outfit along and I am so happy with the results. It makes me really inspired to craft more outfits with knitted and sewn items!  I had planed on doing the official sweater pattern but ended up frogging it after some really large armhole issues. I ended up making the Bright Star cardiagn. It’s knit out of Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage in Button Jar Blue. I have made a few shawls with this yarn over the years. I forget about it then fall right back in love with it every time I use it. I love the drape of this sweater. 

 All those pretty retro cameras!

The dress is my favorite summer go to dress, the Hazel by Colette Patterns.   I really do love this quirky camera dress. I made the skirt a little fuller and longer. to balance out the cropped cardigan. Instead of the traditional straps I made tie straps out of black ribbon. I always have such a hard time with straps that I thought this could be perfect solution. (it was) The Fabric is Michael Miller’s Camera in the Retro Colorway

 Seriously squirrel we are gonna have issue if you drop something on my head.

Thanks so much to Andi and Lauren who organized a super fun bi-crafting along. I can’t wait to this again!
