Dogwood Donna

I have two FOs today.  I have been struggling to find a winter uniform that suits my style.  To date, I have always put away the vintage style over the winter.  I was really hoping that this outfit might qualify for outfit of the winter and could be made a a ton of colors.  Well, I think perhaps the “sweater girl” look is not one that I’m comfortable with.  I think this is draws too much attention to my bust.  On the other hand, I am very happy to have finished another sweater.  The skirt is a reprint from Simplicity, 3866.
