Wednesday, February 10

simple




top - burda magazine (02/2016, #103)
skirt - burda magazine (08/2015, #110)

made this skirt once before (never blogged about it
but you may have seen it on my ig account)
and that one was quick and easy make..
this one, however, was a whole nother story
as i did pretty much everything wrong 
from cutting fabric to hemming the skirt..
but i did finished the darn thing in the end
and it doesn't even look bad
so everything's fine
..
top is the 'test' version of pattern from february burda issue
and might be my favorite thing ever..
i used narrow selvage strips as neck band
(sewed unfolded, slightly stretched selvage strip to the neckline, 
and then topstitched it.. love how it curls a bit)
..
hat is another favorite, even though it's too large..
yarn is wool/rayon/acrylic blend
and i have it in few more colors
so i might just knit one graham hat in each of those colors
..
