by Ellen Hatteland

Nedre Vats, Norway






I have always a project going on.. – even in my mind :)
This top is made of three different fabrics; transparent “croco” jersey, bronze jersey and transparent black net jersey for the sleeves. It’s my first time using raw edges on the sleeves, but for the net jersey it’s no problem. On the left shoulder I inserted a faux leather pieces as in the pattern.

Material Notes

Transparent net and “croco” jersey, and bronze jersey.




Fall, Spring
Garment Type
Rock, Classic
Blends, Knits/Jersey

    Ellen, I think our pattern libraries are very similar. Sometimes I’ll browse my library looking for my next project and then I happen to notice you’ve already made it! I love your choices in this. So lovely!

    This is interesting and clever. Colour blocking is great way to get through a fabric stash.
