Description

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!

    Just saw your sweater on your blog. Looks really great! I want to buy the magazin (beacause I love the related dress pattern) but I don’t succeeded searching via google. Do you know where I might get the magazin?

      There’s a seller in Brazil that sells single magazines on eBay- I don’t know if he has this June issue but it’s worth a look. Otherwise you can take out a subscription with the publishers for the future – even with shipping from Brazil→UK, it works out about the same cost as a Burda mag subscription for me. I’ve got a bunch of reviews on my site if you click the “manequim” tag!
