it’s a wrap

I am waiting, waiting, waiting for some fabric (for my origami wrap) to come in the mail~ oh the agony!

So, while I’ve been so patiently waiting, I decided to play with some rust colored baby-rib knit that I’ve had for ages. I didn’t quite have enough for the origami wrap, but was able to squeeze out enough to make this wrap.

I used an old long sleeve t shirt that I love and kind of traced it’s shape making an extra wide front that I cut in half.  It has a wide drape-y collar that I love. It still needs some modifications and the edges are still rough. I may either hem up the edges or do a rolled hem with my serger.

Next time, I will make the arms a little wider and add enough fabric on the collar to make a hood (if there ever is a next time).  I think this would make a great cover-up for when you are going yoga class. Ha, the yoga class in my dreams!

    I have seen the origami wrap several times, and am not sure what to make it with – what did you use to make this and what did you order to make the origami wrap. What you did is just lovely – I really love it (for more than after yoga!). Reminds me of what my sister got for Christmas:

    Soo cute. Serged would be nice. And love the hoodie idea. I think I prefer this to the origami wrap- it’s more shapely and figure flattering.

  9. This is great Regina. It looks great on you and to just whip it up.. wow! I was just trying on something similar yesterday.

    P.S. The paint I use in my sketch book is gouache. And I do LOVE the books. So great to know there really are others like me. How is The Kind Diet? I saw her on Oprah the other day and was intrigued.
