I have two very simple knit sewing creations in this outfit!
The top is a self-drafted sweatshirt from tracing one of my favorate RTW sweaters. It was very easy – dolman sleeves with a extra, extra wide cuff, and a wide boat neck. For something I just hacked together it turned out very well and very… me.
The bottom is a jade skirt from Paprika patterns. I had a lot of fun making the pattern, so I suspect I’d probably be better in a size 2 instead of a size 1 – this one was a little tighter on me and feels more like a body con skirt than a mini skirt. I also popped a few mystery seams when I first tried it on – (Okay, need a wider zigzag too next time).
Not much else to say! This might be my last post of the year but i have a few very exciting project coming up (gotta take advantage of the days off to do some blogging!!). Happy new year everyone and thank you all so much for listening to my sewing rambling for another year!!

Its a very fun pattern to make too! And i agree – its very easy to wear – so flattering!
You’ve managed to make a super-comfortable all-knit outfit look chic–I’m jealous! As always, I’m excited to see the projects you have in the wings. Enjoy your time off, and have a happy new year!
