As part of my Fall/Winter plans, I knew I wanted a form-fitting turtleneck that could layer well without adding bulk. I know Spring is right around the corner, but am determined to complete some of my earlier wardrobe plans and am super happy with this one. :)
Sue wore her Hepburn Turtleneck on her glorious travels to Hong Kong where you can see her turtleneck near the bottom of her post. She writes that it's easy to layer, but also looks okay on its own. That's how I feel too.
The Itch to Stitch Hepburn Turtleneck pattern in .pdf download costs $10.00 that is truly a bargain considering it is such a well-designed, basic piece that will probably be made in multiples to re-fresh each Fall/Winter season's wardrobe. A keeper! Anyway, to be honest with you it was hard to tell exactly how form-fitting this pattern was designed to be.....
Lotta Jansdotter Pilvi Jacket with the Ottobre Design Woman black miniskirt, black tights and short boots. Nothing feels bulky. You can see in the photo below more how I wear the turtleneck neck 'up', and how high this comes on my neck worn this way. Also, this cotton was a slubby, thinnish, oh-so-soft knit that once it was all made and ready to be worn, I realized it was quite see-through. At first I felt sort of disappointed, but soon realized it makes a perfect undergarment.
Joann Fabric and looks like it is still available. It was purchased Fall 2017 as I was planning my Fall/Winter wardrobe around all these luscious colors.
Yoshiko Tsukiori Happy Homemade Sew Chic jacket again as a nice color contrast against the turtleneck. And this skirt is a highly modified Megan Nielsen Axel skirt that I've still not blogged about. It's super comfortable and exactly the type of skirt I find comfortable to wear.
