Don’t ask me what this is! Some kind of jumper?
In April 2010 I was inspired by the picture of a dress in a vintage magazin ( second picture). I made my own pattern and from time to time I worked on this piece but didn’t finshed it for a long time. Meanwhile it is completed. Today I wore it at the office and in the evening we shot some pictures.

Material Notes

wool, viscose tafeta lining

    Lovely top, and beautifully made. The colour really suits you too.

    Very well done! I like your details. This almost looks like mohair. The colors are very interesting.

      Thank you so much for your comment! :-)
      To tell the truth: I am very happy with the fabric and I am bit proud with the pattern (love the back)… but all in all it is not really perfect. One point is that antique pink is not a color which suits me.

    The shirt looks fantastic! It demonstrates the patient and costly hand work! The back is very complex process, and looks beautiful!

    Love it! I find it is both contemporary and practical and yet with an intriguing vintage vibe! Not deserving to be let unfinished…. Would love the pattern (ahem, probably to create a new UFO : P)
