Maudlin Marauder's outfit

Added Aug 30, 2010

Copenhagen, Denmark






This is my first attempt at sewing jersey. I’ve always avoided it because I thought it would be too hard. But now I love it (it’s so forgiving :-) Anyways, I made the sweater and the skirt (just a tube basically) and the necklace from some Ikat and silk scraps.
A while ago I got really inspired by smalldose’s sailor top, so I’ve been wanting to do something with stripes as well and I quite like how it turned out :-)

I based the pattern for the sweater on an old t-shirt I had. Then I just cut the front pattern up in different shapes, very easy. Luckily, just when I got to the neckline, burdastyle uploaded this great ‘sew a rib knit band’ tutorial…perfect timing :-)

For the necklace, I just sewed lots of fabric tubes and encased them in some leather scraps that I wound around an old belt buckle…et voil :-)

Material Notes

Jersey, Ikat, silk, leather, belt buckle

    Nice. I’m doing this right now because I ran out of fabric for the back of my t-shirt so I’m piecing the scraps XD

    Well, everyone knows i love stripes but this top is definitely one of the best use of stripes I’ve seen. the round like necklace compliments it perfectly and all together, you look fab.

    You took a plain old shirt pattern and made it super cool with just some creative piecing! I love it!

    I featured this top on my blog today :)

    Love the quirky use of stripes. I’ve always been a bit freaked out about using stripey material, but your sweater looks great
