In a recent update post I also mentioned a Jersey Banksia. And here it is. All my pictures of me wearing it are really blurry unfortunately. But you can look at it like below.
I used the info as for the Jersey Sureau and just made it. It is not really fitted but I like it. It is is super comfy and at work it probably got some of the most positive remarks yet of my makes.
At first I found the sleeves annoying as I cut a random sleev which I did not realise was not the one for the Banksia. Hence the odd sort of 80s pleats at the shoulders. Being a pear shape it atcually helps to balance me out! haha!
The sleeves are also a little short and could use a cuff. But I just zigzagged the end and kinda liked it.
The top was made from the same jersey as the one I used before. I really really love the colour.
My winter palette has sort of turned out to be grey and green with odd patterns thrown in. lol
I think next year I will be more conscientus to match my wardrobe more but more on that in a reflections post towards the end of the month.
In terms of makings you will see a selfless make soon. Me and Symon Sez have been briefly talking about “levelling” up your crafty skills over on her blog as she just made a gorgeous Anise jacket, and my next attempt is to do so by making something not for myself. More on that next time.
How do you “level” your sewing skills up?
