Simplicity 1972 - Metallic Sweater

8:45 PM


Worn with Banana Republic skinny cargos; Guess Boots and clutch from The Limited.  Bracelets from Aldo Shoes and Forever 21.

I've been seeing a lot of metallic sweaters this season.  And they're not just for festive holiday wear.  I used Simplicity 1972 for this one.
The instructions were really simple as the name suggests.  But here is the thing:  it's simple as in an experienced sewist can zoom right through this project.  But I don't want to give the impression that a beginner would sew it as quickly.  

I really like the sleeves and this top was perfect for our unseasonably low temps today.  I didn't have to worry about the dolman/kimono sleeves bunching up in coat sleeves.  That's my only concert with wearing a top like this during cold weather.  
For the gathering in the sleeves I used clear elastic and I decided to not make the belt.

  3. I was just going to say the same thing as Trudy - gorgeous skin. You just glow, and not a line to be found. :-)

    Pretty top. As for what to wear over it in colder weather - I guess you'll just have to make/buy a cape now.

    I've really been enjoying your "What I'm Wearing" series.
