Oh Mandy, you came and you gave without taking….
Okay, I’ve lost count now of how many times I’ve sewn this free pattern from Tessuti.
The striped front and back are a piece of rugby knit that Nicole kindly sent me. And in among my ponte scrap tub was some left over pink double knit (bought ages ago from Clear It) that was the perfect colour and perfect weight for the sleeves. Despite its substance, it had plenty of stretch – always important for the sleeves of this pattern.
There’s not much more to say. Neckline turned under, secured with Vliesofix tape then twin needled. Other hems twin needled. Other construction on the overlocker.
And that’s it styled with the Style Arc Simone cardigan made from the fabric that I used for the sleeves, along with a pair of Style Arc Elle pants in ponte. I know, the total look reminds you of something, doesn’t it….
