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

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)
Take off with pleats, cut-outs, insets, and futuristic prints.
