Futuristic Military with Victorian Flavour

Added Mar 7, 2009

by alexus1325

Timmins, Canada






Another Lydia mash-up in ice blue and light grey. The body is colour-blocked on front and back. The sleeves are short pleated puff-sleeves with long sleeves attached. The epaulets are piped, with buttons the same darker blue as the top-stitching.

My boyfriend’s brother told me I look like a Star Fleet Academy cadet :P

Material Notes

Ice blue knit and light grey double-knit (I looove double knit! it’s so soft and warm!).





Zahra’s puff sleeve how-to, and the Lydia pattern.
