She did!!

I managed to get it done. Made a few changes - although I think the tabaco colored skirt would have worked better, it didn't really matter as my print was a skirt. On Friday morning (around 10) I started cutting. I only used 1 pattern I had used before. Kwik Sew 2948 out of a brushed creamy white ribbed knit. I made a sleeveless turtleneck. That top was finished this morning. The other 2 pieces which were cut out yesterday were Kwik Sew 2845, view B. I justed used a size medium - that's what seems to fit me with Kwik Sew. I used a pretty beige lace for the front and underline (?) it with nude swimwear lining. I used a beige knit for the back. Instead of putting a drawstring in the upper front casing - I put elastic in it. The final piece was Textile Studios Capri Jacket. I used the shorted version and shortened it another 3 inches! I also lengthened the sleeves by 2". This was made from a raspberry boucle type knit that I got from Emma One Sock a couple of years ago. Added to that were the brown suede skirt and the pink print Kwik Sew 3337 skirt. I wore the pink skirt, the lace top and the knit jacket to the meeting and got lots of compliments! Photos to follow :)
