finished making this top just in time for Christmas.
it’s the same model as this and made the same way too, in part just to see if i still remember how to do it. so the short answer is, i do. 😁
the fabric i used is merino wool knit jersey that is made in Finland. i probably had about 1,7 m of it and it’s about 120 cm wide. this time i didn’t make any mistakes on the front part, and that means i had enough fabric to make long sleeves.
this fabric was relatively easy to work with. the only problem i had was the fact that it shed quite a bit of dust/fur as i sew (even though i already washed it before sewing), so the cleaning up took a while longer than usual.
after i was done with the sleeves, i just realized that i didn’t make the cuffs as neat as i should have (and as i had done many times before). i was too lazy to open them up again, so what-evah.
i’ve never really been a ’red’ person, so i think this green colour is going to be my Christmas colour theme this year. surprisingly, the colour of this top matches perfectly with the colour of the culottes i made in the summer! all i needed to complete the look was some red accessories.
and i think i did a pretty good job! i’m all warm and comfy in this top, and i really love how it turned out, too. i’m still deliberating whether or not i should add some gold studs to the neckline, but for now i will let it be like this. ❤
Christmas, now i’m ready for you!
