I had some left over double knit fabric which I had used to create this breton roll neck last year, so I thought I'd put it to good use. I used Tilly and the Buttons Coco pattern (seen here) and omitted the sleeves, I cut out the smallest size and dropped the armholes a good couple of inches as I find them to be way too high on me.
I'm wearing it here with my black American Apparel trousers which have sadly been discontinued, don't you just hate it when shops do that? I should have bought a few pairs. I could always make my own but that's a bit too much effort for me at the moment, I have serious sewing fatigue after completing level 1 of my course last month. I made a bespoke waistcoat completely by hand, we only used the machine a few times and that was for things like closing the dart on the canvas and securing the inside of the welt pocket (I hate pockets). Right now I can't even think about attempting any challenging projects or anything new that requires fitting - I'm sticking to tried and tested patterns for a while!
