Greyscale Checked Jumper
People say we look the same, I am inclined to agree?
This post is of a jumper I made 2 years ago. 2 years late, but better late than never! ;D
(And back to regular posting hopefully!)
Using a fabric that had a pattern on one side and a solid on the other, I decided which parts I wanted to be checked, and which ones I wanted to be grey.
The checked shoulder piece I cut 2 of, so I could sew it inside out and then reverse it to get clean edges. This made sewing it onto the garment much easier.
After ironing my shoulder piece, I pinned it in place to see how it would look.
I also folded over a piece of bias tape and sewed that together to create my button loops.
The next bit was the bottom piece that would incorporate a pocket into the design. I cut the large triangle twice so I could turn it inside out to finish the edge in the same way as the shoulder piece.
Sewing it on was terrible. With this many layers, the sewing machine just barely made it through!
Lastly was the zipper, which I affixed in my usual fashion.
