This is the second Esther I made last week during my little Esther-fest. Like my first one, which I already posted, it’s got a mix of woven and knit fabtric. The collar is a slate-coloured wool and the body is some kind of a synthetic knit that my serger refused to allow me to adjust its tension to. The cuffs are a super soft, almost slinky cotton knit with a stripe pattern. I added a belt in the same fabric. And some nautical buttons to top it off. All in all a very simple and fun pattern!
Woven (wool) and knit (cotton and a poly blend)
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
