Information about the outfit not included in post at The Sewing Divas blog: The pants are stretch wool, unlined, with pockets made using JSM Pants1 pattern purchased through Judy Barlup’s online store at UniqueTechniques.com. The tee is an ever-growing rayon/lycra. I should have started with a smaller size but didn’t anticipate the growth factor of the fabric. The pattern is Christine Johson’s Princess Wrap Top The fabric was not from CJ. I believe her fabrics have more stability. Ah, the perils of online fabric shopping!
This vest was knitted from the center to each side on a KnitKing IV, standard gauge knitting machine. It was made from approximately $10.00 worth of Tamm’s Varsity 82%acrylic/18%rayon in their color code 1401, off white heather. It isn’t what I would call off white but I’m not going to argue, this colorway goes with so many things! Being able to create garments with yarn adds a lot of flexibility to the palette you can use to build an outfit.
Here’s the left over yarn and a view of the neckline of the vest. I love the rolled neck and armsyce. It was very easy to do and gives a nice casual definition.
