St. Paddy's Day Tule Cowl (Finally!)

Dear readers, 
       I finally finished this cowl in Hawaii - it took me quite a bit of time to finish and isn't my best work - but I'm glad it's finally done!  I wore it out last night and am wearing it today (while making my Corned Beef and Cabbage). . . .
 A close up - not completely perfect:
 By the way, a year has gone by and I haven't made this coat dress yet, below.  It's on my wishlist.
Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, below, still looks fab in the dress with the alternations for her condition.  I love how the English royalty tend to keep their best pieces and merely alter the garments.  It is quite noticeable in some pictures.
I am however, still working on my day dress.  This weekend,  I made a toile and it needed some minor alternations.   So, hopefully today I plan to cut out the fashion fabric to finish before Thursday - for another St. Paddy's Day celebration (and I'm making more corned beef and cabbage!).
Again, this is the material - I think will look fantastic with the cowl.
Yes, apparently I am obsessed with green!

Happy St. Paddy's Day!

  1. Beautiful cowl! And it'll be fabulous with that dress! We didn't have any CB&C this year - I missed it.
