Fall… Oh how i missed you!! As much as i love sewing dresses and cute skirts, there is just something about sweaters and leggings that makes my heart skip a beat! Its been unseasonably warm around here so its taking a little longer than normal to get in the swing of all sewing BUT a good blog tour will always do the trick! Have you been following along with the other amazing outfits that have been shared this week? It’s been super inspiring, which means my list is now about a mile long, haha!
This gorgeous sweater knit came in a grey mystery box from Sincerely Rylee fabrics last year. I’ve been sitting on it for awhile and this seemed like the perfect time to pull it out. The Piko Top has 3 hem options and 3 sleeve lengths. For this version I went with the hi-lo hem and 3/4 length sleeves.
After I was finished hemming, I gathered some wide black lace and attached it just by zig zagging it along the my original hem. Here’s a little secret, this is the PERFECT way to add a little extra length to both handmade and store-bought items. It made the front length exactly where I would want to wear with leggings.
Speaking of those fabulous leggings, they are the Get Moving Leggings made in a double brushed poly from So Sew English. Now, I know there are a million legging patterns out there, and I definitely own my share of most of them but I will say the fit of these was spot on. When you measure for this pattern, it has you check your calf and thigh measurements in addition to waist/hip. This made it really easy to grade the legs slimmer since my legs are about 2 sizes different than my hips/waist. With 3 different waist styles and multiple lengths (shorts/capris/full length) and with or without a gusset, this leggings pattern is a one stop shop!
