The 70s Ardvark





28thirty is really coming along now. As you can probably tell from the photo, I made a lot of modifications. The sleeve is the main one, as I wanted it to be flared as I thought it would suit the style and the stitch well, and I am really pleased with how it's turned out. It looks a bit 70s inspired, don't you think? I am 3/4 of the way down the second sleeve and have got the buttons to sew on. Hopefully some FO pics to follow soon.

Tonight is my Race For Life . I am feeling nervous, but know I'll be glad to have run it when it's over. We're thinking about doing the 10k one in the Autumn (gulp!) We are having a picnic afterwards as there is a crowd of us and we all have something to bring. My thing is pizza. I have eaten what won't fit in the box and am now regretting it. Let's hope I don't see it again later......if you know what I mean!!!

Wish me luck!!!! I think I'll need it!

I missed the chance to wish you luck on the race as it's over by now (I think) but I'm quite certain you did very well!!

I agree I think the flared sleeves go much better with this garment style! Hope you write up the mods for us! ;o)

And I am sure you did well on your race! Can't wait to hear about it!
Sending good vibes!
