Description

I found this basic fitted wool crew neck sweater from Banana Republic fall 04 line in a thrift store for $5. I bought it with the intent of remaking it into a sweater from Milly that was featured on Emma Pillsbury from Glee. I used a vintage Simplicity pattern for the collar (it was supposed to be a detachable collar but I attached it with zig zag stitch). The placket was from another vintage Butterick. I interfaced the collar and finished the edge with bias tape. The Milly sweater features thick topstitching; I used embroidery thread and an embroidery cam with my 1974 Kenmore zig zag machine to make a simple design, then added the buttons (which I admit are not perfectly lined up). The placket is only attached by the buttons and then tacked down on the corners to prevent puckering when the sweater stretches.

Material Notes

The material I used for the collar and placket is a stretch woven with a waffle texture repeating pattern. Not sure of the fabric content but most likely some kind of polyester.
