Skyelines are Keeping me Warm

And the deep-freeze continues…..

So I’ve been hibernating indoors and sewing, and sewing, and sewing.

I’ve made another version of this same pattern (in the next size up, medium) using a leftover piece of green marbled flannel that was left over from making my hubby a bathrobe.  It took me an entire day of shuffling the pattern pieces on the fabric so they’d fit.  I won!  It’s like a contest you know.

My first was in the black and white checked flannel.  It’s warm and cozy!  And actually fits well except the sleeves are tight and I have trouble pulling it over my head to take it off.

While I was shuffling the pattern pieces around for the green variation I was dreaming of embellishments.  I changed the collar making it smaller and a  stand up version.

I really like the way this one turned out.  I used bias strips sewn into tubes then top-stitched them in place.  The closures are plastic snaps.

How are you keeping warm?  I’d love to hear from you.
