pulling the wool over my eyes

Yo! I’m back! Well, for now. I got this washable wool jersey at Rose City Textiles here in Portland. It’s pretty luscious stuff–stretchy and warm with a good amount of heft.
I often have a tough time deciding what to make with fabrics I really like, because I don’t want to mess anything up. For this fabric, though, I knew a long-sleeve top was in order. I had made a top from this awesome Korean craft book a while back and liked it, so I opted for a long-sleeve version. I am pretty happy with the way it turned out, and it is very comfy. Of course, it’s 70 degrees today, and I am still a little cold with the one layer on, but what can you do.

    The top looks great, and the drape of the fabric looks like it would also make a great dress with some fairly casual styling. Terrific job!

  4. I like the length of these sleeves. Often the length of long sleeved shirts are’t quite long enough for me – I hate it when it stops right above my wrists, poor naked wrists!! – these look comfy.

    You are amazing! I love how you make the best clothes. Such an inspiration to us mere mortals. Keep up the great work.

    That is too cute! I need to see if my mom can track that book down for me.

    I am in serious love with this shirt. It looks so awesome! If the book weren’t so hard to acquire I would be seriously tempted to run out and get myself some wool jersey THIS AFTERNOON and have a try, despite my 3rd-grade sewing skills.
