If you’ve picked up your latest copy of Sew News (DecJan 2013), you’ll want to turn to page 48 to see my latest project for this issue! The Petal Pusher shrug was a fun, Project Runway-esque garment to make (I worked a lot on a dress form and think I turned out something fairly trendyunique), but is definitely not something you can whip up in a few hours (there are lots of petal embellishments to attach). You’ll also want to invest in some Best Press or liquid starch to keep your petals from curling too much. Want to dress this style up for evening? Make a matching tank to wear underneath (I can definitely see this as a holiday garment)! Hope you enjoy this article and definitely let me know if you sew this one up!
