Basic Pullover Top & Owyn Pants
I had gone into Bolt last week to scope out fabric for some projects prior to their holiday sale this weekend and scored the following: stretch black denim, red cotton-linen with tiny navy hearts and a dotted chambray. I sewed up two of the projects today, which were easy and quick. I used the denim for the Owyn pants from the new Lotta Jansdotter book, Everyday Style. These are casual pull-on pants with an elastic waist. I wanted to try the uneven, fraying denim hem trend and like how they came out. I made a size medium based on the sizing chart, but probably will go down to a small if I make them again. I used the chambray for a pullover V-neck top from my new Japanese pattern book. I love the split hem and dolman sleeves. The back is one piece and the front has raglan sleeve construction. I plan to make a dress from the same pattern book and will work on that in the coming few weeks.
