a very sturdy black knit




Garment Type
Casual, Classic

    Thanks everyone. I’ve worn it with a few other tops already. So nice to be able to sew basics.

    The necklace is made by the T’boli people from the Philippines. They come in all kinds of gorgeous color combinations. I only have three but next time I go home I’m getting heaps and heaps and heaps of these!

      Thanks hyunjoo! Yes I made the pillow too. It is one of our projects in our studio workshops. It is based on the purlbee tutorial.
