I loved this pattern from the moment it came out…v neck – check, collar interest – check, back interest- check. This is a pattern that is designed to be made either 100% with a knit or with a woven front and a knit back and knit sleeves. I decided to make this in a woven/knit version and as far as I can recall, it’s my first mixed media item. I had a blast making it, despite my nightmarish woven fabric.
Here are the pics.
Overall, I think it’s awesome! This is a size 6 with a forward shoulder adjustment and nipped in at the waist to make it a little more fitted. The front fabric is a double layer of this chiffon type stuff from Joann’s recently. The back is a knit from Fabricmart with a lace overlay. The lace came from Needle Nook Fabrics.
I definitely plan to sew this again once the right combo of fabrics enters my life and I think it completely hits the mark of being Fast and Fabulous!
