To finish out 2018, I’m trying to go back and blog anything that I forgot to make happen over the last few months. This sweater was sadly something that never made it to the blog but should have. Because I wear it SO MUCH and I love it even more.
I’m not always the biggest fan of slouchy style tops. I feel like they often make me look heavier, even if they are better at hiding my flaws more than a more form fitting top. However, when this sweater knit fabric arrived from Boho Fabrics last September (!?!?!) it immediately needed to become a slouchy style top. Funny how that works, isn’t it?
This is the RagDoll Raglan from Patterns for Pirates and it’s one of those crazy tops that fits into two categories. It has a raglan style sleeve, but is very loose in the bust and has that “batwing” effect that you see so often in dolman style tops. It’s the perfect pattern for you when you have a drapey fabric and need a cozy top.
I’m still working on mastering the whole “french tuck” or “blogger tuck” or “half tuck” or whatever you want to call sticking the front of your shirt into your pants. But I felt it was very appropriate with the styling of my outfit and I went for it. It wasn’t that big of a miss, was it?
Want to hear a sad story? Those charcoal skinnies from Old Navy are basically my favorite bottoms to wear. Ever. And I’ve apparently worn and loved them so much that I wore a hole into the inner thigh. SADDEST DAY EVER when I discovered it. I’m going to patch that hole the best I can, but I think I’m sadly going to have to say goodbye to my beloved pants.
I hate shopping in anything besides fabric stores and Target’s dollar section, but it looks like I’m going to have to take a trip to Old Navy soon to see if they still carry these same pants. Crossing all fingers and toes, you guys.
