I found this cotton at the fabric store and instantly knew that what I was going to make out of it would be either brilliant or embarrassing. It has this Scandinavian style print in teal, purple and brown on the right side whereas the wrong side has a cosy fleece surface. I used Burda pattern # 133, issue 11/2010 and love how it turned out though I could understand if people find it hideous. But it’s big and warm and comfy and cosy and just the right thing to wear now that the temperatures have dropped below 0°C again.
I also made the dress, the belt and the necklace I’m wearing in the pictures myself.
I wrote a tutorial for the necklace here and the belt here, blogged about the dress here and about the cardigan here.
