A fully handmade outfit! Yay! And my first knit top to boot!
The skirt is my self drafted pencil skirt pattern. Its made from a wool flannel that I picked up awhile ago and I can’t for the life of me remember where. Its that fabulous fuschia color and I adore it. Quite warm too.
The top is my first try with a knit. Finally after 3 times of trying to get the fit right, I think I finally have a winner. Its Kwik Sew 3616 and is made from a genuine wool jersey, which surprisingly is not itchy in the least. Love wool jersey! For more details you can visit my blog post about this outfit here.
