Two weeks ago I posted about my tester version of the new Cashmerette Belmont leggings, and and mentioned how I hadn’t tried the top out yet… well, now I have! The Cedar pattern include a fitted workout tank which I’m not likely to ever make… and a loose dolman tee with an optional tie hem. … More Cashmerette Cedar Top – and how I added long sleeves!
You might not know it, but I haven’t taken blog pictures in two months. Over the course of the fall I started having sciatic pain in my legs, and by November it was full-blown back pain! Thankfully, it’s all been sorted out now (my nerve was being pinched by sitting on plastic school chairs and … More I’m back in the game – and wearing Cashmerette leggings!
