Home for the weekend.

India is home from University for the weekend, so I made the most of her, in payment for modelling she gets to keep this sweater, plus a few more of my Weekend Doris samples that she has taken a shine to, and of course they look a lot better on her.

This sweater is made using my third draft of this pattern, and a piece of polyester/wool mix sweater knit I bought in Abakhan yesterday for £3!

The sweater goes together very quickly, a satisfactory make leaving me enough time to also make myself a Weekend Doris dress too, but you'll have to wait for that one, only till tomorrow.

  6. Such a great early 60s vibe to the fabric, and of course your lovely daughter's styling. I've been to the Abakhan in Liverpool once and will def be popping in again when I'm next in Liverpool.
