Fabulous Day At Signatures Runway Fashion Show May 4, 2015

We had our Spring Signatures runway fashion show on 2 May and I was crazy mad knitting all the pieces I wanted to show. I machine knit this top from my Cutie Pie pattern and developed a new skirt pattern using only 3 panels so the wearer would not have a seam line to add to her hips on both sides. Great drapy effect. I hand knit and fringed the shawl using about 20 different high-end yarns. My model rocked the outfit on the runway. Just had to share a couple of other photos also. I used an Ice “Alara” yarn, which is 50% Cotton and 50% Acrylic. It comes in so many wonderful colors! It gives a great drape and bloomed a little under steaming so the tops and skirts I made out of them were opaque. I did this Red and a Beige set as a long skirt combo at 32″, a Black one as a shorter 25″ skirt, and then a plus size one in Navy long skirt combo for me. I will probably do the pattern when I get a chance. Knits always look better on a live model than hanging sadly on a hanger. I want to encourage everyone that knitting is not just for hats, scarves and baby blankets, but everything you wear can be a comfy knit when you explore the vast capabilities of your machine. Unlock your creative juices and let it flow!!

Your words are so true: knitters, knit more wearable things!
Your pictures and designs are great and show the beauty of the knitwear.
Honestly: I come along tons of hats and scarves while traveling the internet and they are beautiful – don´t get me wrong.
But if one´s able to knit it in that small size, why not try a jacket, a skirt or even a dress?
There are more occasions to wear a cardi or a skirt, than a scarf (which disappears most of the times in one of the arms of the jacket, when taking the jacket off).
Thank you for pointing that out 🙂
