A little bit of neon

I keep seeing neon everywhere and though I haven’t worn neon since about 1985, I thought I would take the plunge with just the weeniest bit ……… just to keep up with the kids (as you do).

The grey jersey was from my stash, but the yellow neon I bought at Fabrics Galore, it has a lovely weight to it and they had a great selection of colours so I think I will be back soon to purchase more!

The pattern is from Sew U Home Stretch from Built by Wendy, I first heard of this great book from Tilly here, and I love it, lots of versatile patterns that you can alter and adapt. It also has lots of handy tips and advice on knits.

I’m happy how it turned out, I did alter the neckline and now it is a little wide, so has to be worn with tank top as it tends to slip off the shoulder! Will have to fix that on the next one, and there will be more. It was a super quick make, which was so satisfying. The overlocker also got an outing and now that I am over some of my teething problems I love the finish.

As it is selfish sewing week I had a few tops cut out and ready to sew and magically this coincides with Me Made May which I have signed up for. Last year I chicken out and just watched from the sidelines, so I thought with my new dedication to blog I could also make a pledge to Me Made  May ’14, so here it is.

‘I, Sandesh, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’14. I endeavour to wear at least on item of own made clothing, and dress my son in one handmade item(clean clothes permitting) each day for the duration of May 2014’

So fingers crossed for tomorrow and the rest of the month, I am excited about keeping my pledge.
