With this small amount of work-free time I have had recently (due to deadlines having passed, yay!) I have been able to get back into making a couple of bits and bobs to enjoy wearing :)
Here is the first one for you to have a look at. It's a slightly over sized slouchy jumper, made from some lovely brown ready-knitted fabric that I bought down at my local branch of Fabric Land.
I adapted a kimono sleeved-top patten that I had previously drafted in class at uni, and just extended the arms and hem, and widened the neckline.
I made it using my very beautiful, new overlocker sewing machine (I'll share pictures with you soon!) which allows me to neaten off all the edges of everything I now make, and also to be able to use stretch fabric such as knits and jersey in my creations!
I also made a little bow to sew onto the centre of the neckline to add a little bit of interest :)
I got the boy to take some pictures of me wearing it :) see below!
Below are the sleeves- I doubled up the cuffs and made them extra long so I could fold them up to give a chunkier look to the end of the sleeve :)
...and a little picture of my boots again.
They're abit messy now because I wear them so much!
I hope you enjoyed this post, I'd love to know what you think
Keep your eyes peeled- I have a exciting DIY on the way, just getting the pictures ready!
