Marfy Shrug + Skirt

From Marfy Shrug


This is actually the fourth shrug I've made from this pattern so far. Between the floral one I did first, and this one, I made two black ones for a couple of friends. I'm really pleased with this pattern. Sorry for the poor photo quality; I was reduced to doing mirror pictures today.

In this version, it's the fabric that is the interest. This is an unusual two-layer knit The bottom layer is thick and squishy and the top layer is almost like a very fine hosiery mesh which is 'bubbled' so there's a lot of texture. I've had this fabric for quite some time, but never knew just exactly what I'd do with it until now.

Here's a side/back view, and with a different blouse. I think this is going to be something I'll wear a lot this Fall.

Looks good, Liana. Great way to utilize those shorter yards of fancy fabrics.

I must say your shoes are gorgeous!!! I hope they get lots of wear too

Lovely shrub. But like Mary Beth what attracted me was your awesome shoes, I wish my feet could stand such high heels.

Ooh.., Cute shrug and that fabric is great. Those shoes are FIERCELY sexy.

Nice garment. I can see how this simple shurg could expand the use of summer garments into at least early fall. Good idea, Liana.

Great outfit, and the shrug will transition nicely to fall with many things!

The shrug and skirt are amazing and look fabulous together. I have to admit that the shoes really got my attention too though.
