Description

I found this CRAZY green and black houndstooth dead stock coating and decided it would make the perfect slacker sweater. I trimmed it with some black acrylic jersey, and I think the result is kind of nutty.

Material Notes

2 kinds of fake wool.

    Yes, color! I don’t consider this as a ‘slacker’. I would definately dress this up! Nice job.

      Thank you,

      I made one, but it’s very simple. I used my flat head sleeve block with an oversized knit bodice block. et voila.
