In case you didn't know, I love animal prints. A couple of week ago a picked up a lightweight sweater knit in JoAnns and immediately knew what I would do with it. I started with Vogue 1179.
I shortened it, made it more of an A-line and added the sleeves from Butterick 5554.
This is what I came up with.
I've paired with store bought black jeggings and over-the-knee boots. Of course you can't see the detail because of the fabric but the fabric is the star afte rall. The husband says it looks like a maternity top but who died and left him "chief of the freakin' fashion police?" It came out just as I intended. I love the super long sleeves and added an opening to insert my thumbs to kick it's style up another notch. Can you say SUPER COMFY. Love it, love it, love it.
