leather piping sweatshirt

this is wide neck sweatshirt, from june issue of burda magazine
it’s made from a shapeless cotton jersey dress that i never wore
so i decided to refashion it into something more fun
there was not enough fabric for the whole sweatshirt
so i decided to make back panel from black net, that i got from a remnant bin
it was a very narrow piece, hence the center back seam
i added faux leather piping, to make the look a bit more edgy..
and, since there was not enough jersey fabric for neck and arm bindings,
i used faux leather piping instead
it’s an oversized sweatshirt, i thought it might be a bit too big
so made size 36 (i usually go for 38 with burda patterns)
and i’m pretty happy with the way it fits
leggings are my favorite leggings pattern – burda’s lace leggings, from june 2012

    Would not have known to look at this pattern in this way; the outfit is AWESOME. You should feel awesome wearing it. You look amazing, your work is amazing, the details are so creative and spot-on. Plus, you could be running to the grocery store or the DJ booth and look equally cool and comfortable. As in, even though the ensemble contains a number of edgy design elements – bodycon, exaggerated shapes, sheers, multiple textures, lots of shiny – in NO WAY is this outfit wearing you – which is not necessarily something everyone can pull off as effortlessly as you do. Thanks so much for the inspiration!

    Totally club-ready. In fact, in this outfit, I would expect you to take over the DJ box. :-)

      :) thanks.. that would be a fun experience.. would you believe me that i’ve never set foot in club (i guess those dodgy ‘clubs’ where young metalhead me used to hang out can’t really qualify as clubs)

      Dodgy metalhead clubs totally qualify! My favourite kind!

    So creative. So ecologically conscious. So beguiling. I would want that top in my wardrobe closet.
