This is the outfit I sewed myself for my birthday this past January. Usually most of the clothing I make is for the kids, and especially for my daughter, but for my birthday, I like to make something for me. It is just a casual outfit, but I love the greens in it! I took some of the material I used with the pants and made diamond appliques for the mock turtleneck tee-shirt. There is another fabric incorporated into the tee-shirt I intend to eventually use for a coordinating skirt. I discovered spinning between completing this part of my outfit and the planned skirt which delayed its completion! Eventually I would like to spin up coordinating yarn for a summer sweater to "mix and match" with these other pieces.
