Description

this top is made out of wool
using self drafted pattern
(and strange drafting ‘technique’
of combined geometry and origami
carefully performed on my living room floor)
..
i’m surprised how much i like it..
it was meant to be an experiment
and ended up being one of my most beloved projects ever..
i’ve made it last week
and already wore it many many times from then
..
leggings are made using burda pattern for lace leggings (6/2012, mod 124)
i’ve made that pattern multiple times
and every time i’m amazed how easy it is to make a pair of leggings
and how ridiculous it is that some leggings at store cost a real fortune
..

Material Notes

top: wool- 1m light gray and 0.5m dark gray.. 3 or more meters of cotton bias binding (i finished all hems with bias tape, and also ‘sealed’ all the seams with it, so the top looks nice and smooth on the inside too.. pair of snaps, sewed onto the sleeves
leggings: 1m jersey, 3cm wide elastic, for the waist (60cm)

Difficulty

Intermediate

    I love how this fits, it is very pretty and looks like it could be fashioned so many ways.

      hvala :) materijal sam nabavila u beogradu, u radnji u kojoj najcesce nabavljam materijale (zato sto je najjeftinija.. navodno prodaju italijanske materijale, ne znam da li je to tacno, posto i nisu bas kvalitetni)..

    Wow, what a cool top! I can tell it’s very cozy and I’m a bit sad it does not come from a Burda pattern which I could cope! Great work you’ve done – you can be proud having created it all by yourself! I’m impressed! The leggings are great as well!!

      thank you for your lovely comment.. i’m actually looking forward to drafting patterns for more of the stuff i make, it’s more fun and more personal that way, and a great learning experience too

      Ups, I just marked your command as inappropriate… which I did not intend to do!!! Sorry. I wanted to add, that its’ great that you can do that, make your own patterns. I don’t think I’m there yet…. Some day ;o>
