The funnel neck top with slits at the sleeve ends has a puristic, perfect look. It is so easy that it is also perfectly suitable for beginners
An effectively ultra-casual cropped jacket sewn in a warm wool fabric. The bodice has a sewn-in panel that includes snaps to close in front.

Stretch Shift Dress

The wide trousers sewn with a double layer of jersey get additional sophistication from the bunched XL band - and they are a quick sew.
