Even though I’m a big fan of these boys my wardrobe has very little black in it – it’s just not me. But I found this stripey stretchy stuff – I know! it’s not black and white but black and grey – in the op shop for a couple of dollars and had a play at the weekend. I used the neckline and cowl neck from the Kwik Sew pattern (image C) and the body and sleeves from the Burda one.
I didn’t bother matching up the stripes but hey! look what happened on this side:
Sheer luck (it didn’t happen on the other side!). There’s not very much more to say about this top except that I quite like the cowl neck – this is the first one I’ve made. I’ll probably wear the top out and about, now and again, under a coat. If I’d known about this pattern before I’d started cutting out my pattern pieces I might have made a Bronte top. Never mind.
Black and grey – does it count? Anyway, enough. I’m off to find some colour.
