Some more basics...

This...



Plus this...


Equals this...



I found this pattern in one of Out of the Ashes offerings and promptly bought it! I liked the idea of a mock neck turtleneck...though I think I am going to have to alter this so that it's just a little higher in the front...and it still needs the gray buttons added...but for a wearable muslin...it's not bad!

It has a zipper in the back. Since I didn't have an invisible one in the right length I inserted it by hand. I like this effect and will probably use it again...


However, the next version of this will definitely have a higher front neckline...anyway, this is what I worked on...I wasn't that motivated to sew...it was a rainy weekend and all I wanted to do was curl up in bed with a good book.

More later...

  1. Your set is so nice and very wearable. I was looking at the turtle neck that was in the burda plus and thinking it might be nice cut down into a small mock neck. I have too much turkey gobbler stuff going on with my short neck to do the turtle neck thing any more.

  4. Better than a muslin, for sure. I think the shape is flattering on you. Perfect for fall

  7. Great twinset and really like the mock neck. After working on a turtleneck a mock neck would be a nice alternative.

  8. Nothing wrong with that set! You've made a very wearable set that transitions the seasons perfectly. Besides, by now, we all know what you've been up to - enabling trips to NYC!

  9. Nice print! Looks great, no one would believe it's the first crack at a pattern (since we all know of your superb alterations/personalizations!)

  12. How did you do this zipper? Or can you shoot a detail picture? It looks perfect.

  13. I just got this fabric recently and haven't completely decided what it wants to be, but this twinset was definitely the perfect choice for you. I love how it looks on you, and I'm sure you have a ton of things to wear it with. The zipper is ... impressive. I've only started putting zippers in knits and that insertion scares me slightly.

    Gorgeous, as usual.
