I finished Que Sera and a new skirt!

The cardigan is the free Que Sera pattern from Knitty I started ages ago. Isn’t it pretty? Stop looking at those buttons, I know I went a bit wrong with my measuring :) I realised too late that I wasn’t going to have enough room to fit in another properly spaced buttonhole so I put one as high as I could in the neckband when I knitted it on. I think it’s ok?
The skirt was one I’ve had for ages, but it was far too big and had a bleach mark on the hem:
Yeuch, very sloppy! To fix it I added two box-pleats, one in the front and one in the back to pull in the waistband. Then I hemmed it shorter to get rid of that nasty red bleach spot.
This is my new teaching outfit – it’s the first day of class today and I wanted to make a good (smart-ish) impression. I might have to dig out my wide red belt though, to add a bit of zing - I am an art teacher, after all!

  1. Your sweater looks very good! I wish I could figure out how to knit something other than scarves :)
