Description

I fell in love with this pattern from the moment I saw it, and knew it would be nice for color blocking.
Since I had a little wool fabric left from my jacket and my skirt I thought it would be nice together with the white wool I had in my stash. I omitted the zipper since the fabric is stretchy and I’m very happy how it turned out :)

    To look at your project made from the fresh magazines is the same as if to look through the magazine by different edition:-) Your interpreatations are always so individual and made with great taste and the colour feeling and always suit you very well:-)
