I had bought some Apricot jersey over the internet with making a pencil skirt in mind, however the fabric was a lot heavier than I had anticipated and so I changed my plans and decided to make my first Raglan jumper.
To make the fabric more interesting I stitched a diamond pattern for the appearance of quilting.
I also added some vintage floral fabric pieces I had left to the neck hem for decoration.
I purposefully made the triangular patch on the front non-parallel to the diamond-detail as it looked better than it did parallel.
I have already worn it a lot as the Sport Luxe trend is STILL happening.
