I cut this pattern out last winter from some butter soft cotton double knit using the Knipmode May 2011 Special, blazer pattern. Since I’m currently sewing one unfinished/ abandoned project for each new garment I sew, I decided it was time to tackle this make.
The bubble skirt is a Mila Schn pattern (#14 from Patrones Extra 264) that I sewed up using the Acrylic knit from Oona’s One Cool Thing One Strange Thing swap parcel backed by a holographic foil jersey (for opacity + it has this really cool effect where, from an angle, you can kind of make out the 70s style acid induced coma pattern on the foil jersey through the openwork of the Acrylic knit). I made the pocket yokes, pockets and pocket facings out of fur and it keeps my hands waaaaarm.
Grey cotton double knit
Self-fabric covered button
