It just really doesn’t make sense to make a sweater out of fabric with holes, right? But I did!
This is the Sew House Seven Toaster Sweater #2, a very popular pattern for good reason. I made this months ago and forgot to blog it. Every time I pull it out to wear it I remember Hey! I should throw this on the blog and tell everyone how much I love it.
This is the weirdest fabric, kinda a suede-like laser cut with some stretch to it. Since it is not cold here, I thought I would like some holes in my sweater! But these pictures were taken on quite a windy day and actually, I wished it wasn’t so breezy. I’m such a goldilocks, aren’t I? Also, the suede was catching on my camisole and it looks like it is pulling, but actually the fit is quite nice through the shoulder and bust.
So, it is a very nice pattern. I like the fold over facing on the funnel neck, I like the hi-lo hem and mitered corners. It is great to wear with slim jeans because the bodice is pretty boxy. And the entire look is effortless but modern, and perfect when I’m just working from home and I don’t want to get dressed really, but this is still an outfit.
I would like opinions on this mauve color. I love this color so much, but I know that very few people do. What are your thoughts? I feel like it is subtle, almost a neutral, but not beige or in the brown/warm tones family. I don’t think I have any clothing on the warm side of the spectrum! I wear only blues/grays/pinks/greens. And that is a big reason I was so excited to see blush popping up everywhere this last year — I think it is such a fun alternative to beige. And yet I know beige and camel can be so useful.
