It's Stitches West and I have but this morning to post and then I'm off to shop my cowl off. Wait, I don't have a cowl. (I actually already did some early damage at the market pre-show last night, so today I'll be helping friends spend money they don't have.) I just can't believe I'm saying this but it's too warm to wear Mavis at Stitches this year. It's gorgeous out but I want to wear my sweater!
I'm really glad I reworked it. I wore it all day after the photo session. It's comfy and I'm not pulling or adjusting it. This is basically what I did:
I reworked the body like the drop sleeve sweatshirt that I know fit the way I liked. I opened up the collar as well and nix'd the cowl. Then I reworked the sleeves to match.
Although it has most of the elements of the original Mavis, somehow without the cowl I don't feel I can really call it Mavis anymore.
Or can I?
Happy Fiber Arts Friday and FO Friday, join the party and leave a comment!
Thanks to Kelsey for modeling the cowl (knit separately) -- those are my daughter's lovely tresses.
