If you are a driven person like me, you are constantly challenging yourself to do better and accomplish more. Who wants to cruise on the bunny slope when you’re comfortable skiing moguls? Due to recent time constraints, I was forced to rediscover the joy of simple sewing or not sew at all.
My adventurous side led me to order this Olive Abstract Knit from Mood Fabrics without ordering a sample. Fortunately I loved it upon opening the package! Editor’s note: This fabric is a sweater-knit jersey blend. It has a soft, slightly fuzzy hand like a cozy sweater, but it’s lightweight and stretchy like a jersey knit. Available both online and at Mood NYC.
I paired the warm sweater knit with Style Arc’s Amy Knit Top, a free pattern I received from Style Arc over a year ago.
Generally I avoid wearing oversized tops because they appear disproportionate on me although they look great on my taller friends. Since Style Arc had never disappointed me before, I gave the pattern a try and made the top in three short hours.
I truly love being proven wrong on this one!
Until soon 🙂
