As we transition into Fall (my absolute favorite season) we are faced with the challenge of what to wear.
It’s cool when you head out in the morning, sometimes warm during the day, and even cooler at night. We find ourselves looking for that perfect garment balance and that gave me the idea to create a simple wool vest.
This has to be the easiest shape to create. You could absolutely draft a pattern free hand if needed.
Here’s what I used:
- 2 yards Mood Designer Fabrics Italian Brown Wool With Colorful Striped Border
- Pattern 4E from Burda Autumn/Winter 2015.
This wool is extremely light weight and it has a soft fuzzy feel. The best part is the beautiful brown, baby pink, and baby blue striped border. So cute!!
The shape of this garment is so simple you could change it into anything! Add a belt, add sleeves, make it in a fuzzy cut & sew sweater knit. There are endless ideas running through my mind so I am sure I will be making another one! There are large patch pockets at the front and I left the bottom unfinished for an edgy look.
As you will see in the photos, the vest is a great layering piece to my thin open knit sweater. My denim jeans really brings out the striped border as well.
I hope you feel inspired, and I can’t wait to see what you make!
