Knotted Holiday Shirt

Added Oct 24, 2016

Nedre Vats, Norway






I love to wear cozy garments, and this is one I can recommend :) It’s easy to sew and it’s nice with the knot at the hem. I have used lightweight jersey with transparent stripes which makes it more interesting.

    Nice top, I liked it in the magazine, too, and am glad to see it ready. Is it very loose?

    Hello, Ellen! Love your hairstyle especially the back part. I have not been keeping up with member projects so I’ve missed many things over the summer and early fall this year. The top and shorts (you do love colour!) do give the vacation feeling many of us crave when we have free days that might be cold and gray.

    love it. the fabric looks fabulous with your tan :-)), looks like you have inspired lots of people to try this pattern (me included) so we’ll probably see many versions of this in the future, hahahaha

    This pattern is one of the reasons I bought this issue, love your white version and will make one myself as well. does this pattern run a bit big Ellen, it looks tighter on the model.
