Brooklyn, New Yo...
I bought this fabric so so long ago. I loved the color, but didn’t know what to do with it for a long time. Finally, this was a Saturday morning cartoon project that, of course, leaked into a much longer project. I cut the shape of the sleeves, then cut a bunch of smaller pieces together, and draped them on my dress form, while stitching them together with fuzzy orange yarn I had in my stash.
It’s pretty cool looking. Reversible, front to back and in to out. Funky cowl neck, extra long sleeves, long hem. The hem is raw.
This is very free-form, avant garde sweater-ism. Expect it to wear as such.
Wool/acrylic blend designer surplus, variegated orange and red acrylic fuzzy yarn, love
