the black/grey boxy felted wool top with the cool tree design.
Grainline Linden that took the sewing world by storm on it's release in 2014.
This is a straight size 8 Linden, view B in non-stretch woven fabric
Sewn with 70cm of opp shop sourced vintage wool, washed (read as mildly felted & pre-shrunk) & slightly itchy. It's all good though as I love the speckled wool and it's a layering piece, part of my armour against the winter winds that come straight off the Antarctic.
*Update after wearing this almost every day for the past 5 weeks - it's not itchy IRL! And the neckline lets everything layer well, I adore this SOOO much!!
I did take in the back raglan seams by 2cm at the neckline, grading to nothing by 7cm. Amanda gave the heads up on her rad quilted Linden & back breeze from Antarctic wind is not welcomed down here anymore than it is in Canberra. It also has snugged the neckline nicely, so I'll continue with this for the next version.
*photographic evidence is in the pink version, up next!
|Such a gorgeous paisley match|
The sleeves and split hem are simply pinked, turned and hand stitched, invisibly in the wool, giving me the option to adjust them if I wish.
|Woven vintage wool = swing!|
Yes, you could say my sew-jo is back ;)
|More mad and crazy antlers in the next Linden post!|
