My first experience in mens’ fashion ;-)
I made Amin as a christmas gift for my boyfriend. I love this pattern and I think I’ll make another one in a smaller size for me.
I used sweatshirt fabric in dark blue and highlighted two seams and the centerfront with brown piping and a brown-golden zipper. I altered the collar and made it a little bit longer. This was the first time using rib knit – I didn’t know how to work with it on the inside, so I fixed it with an invisible stitch to hide the seam on the left side (I wanted it to look accurate, my mother always pointed this out until I understood that an accurately sewn garment looks much better and makes me more satisfied ;-) ). This took a lot of time, but I’m really happy about the result.
