This was a Michael Kors-inspired pattern from the Brazilian pattern magazine, Manequim, and I modified it to fit me since it was just offered in one size. I sewed it up using some ex-Versace wool sweater knit so it’s a double-designer piece!
I barely had enough fabric to make this so I had to piece the sleeves then left the edges raw to maintain the long sleeve length. It’s surprisingly warm for its thinness!
100% wool, ex-Versace grey sweaterknit bought from Ditto Fabrics in Brighton, UK last year
