Retro Restyle: Wool Stadium Blanket

After many cold, winter days of just dreaming about this project…

I finally awoke to success!

I paired McCalls 3730 and a wool stadium blanket to sew up a fabulously warm and comfy jumper.  The pattern worked up easily with no major alterations.  I was smart enough to leave enough ease through the waistline so that I can actually breath and bend and eat.  And I even have enough blanket left over to make a matching bolero.  More pics on my blog.  Stay warm, Everyone!

Shepherdess, retro-housewife, mother, seamstress... but labels can be deceiving. I also play the sax, butcher chickens and sing in the church choir. I raise sheep and bale hay. I sew from Grandma's patterns and drive a 1950 Ford Shoebox. Life at the Willow Homestead is retro right down to the 1947 Frigidaire!
