Pickadilly

I finished the lace trim for Pickadilly yesterday and couldn't wait to sew it on!


I do love this pattern and could not stop thinking about when I first saw it.
I wanted to be a little less boring with my color choices. I was thinking mustard yellow and brown at first. Maybe grey and green.
What can I say? I love tan, ivory, grey, black, brown. Always go for what you like. I am just a neutral kind of gal.


Details:
Pattern: Pickadilly from Flint Knits
Yarn: Elsebeth Lavold Silky wool in grey, 4 hanks
Mods: Short sleeves, I didn't do buttons all the way down, and I did the lace down both sides of the front instead just one. I also omitted the lace on the sleeves and around the bottom hem.
Have a good weekend!

lTotally cute! I like it short sleeved so much better and the lace is really cute. I, too, am a neutral kind of gal, too. I try to do the bright colors, but always go back to cream, white, tan, grey, black! (Sometimes pink)
