Toaster Time

It's that time of year when only a Toaster will do....

This is another repeat of a pattern for me, having made several versions already. The fabric was the deciding point on this one.

I just love the colours of this jersey fabric - black, bright blue and pink! It's from Textile Express and called 'Retro Ski'.  It's a great weight fabric, not very stretchy but just enough for a loose top.

Necklace from Ecclectic Eccentricity

The great thing about the Simplicity 8529 version of this Sew House Seven design is that there are multiple lengths and neckline options. This is View C.

As per the previous incarnations of this pattern I also lengthened the step hems very slightly so it was leggings appropriate. Also a good move as I can also wear a t-shirt under it for extra toasty cosy factor.

This pattern is really similar to the Elliot Sweater, especially if you chose to make the high neck option - but I think I have to go with this one as a preference. For me the fit and drape of the pattern is just a bit more elegant.

Nothing ground breaking today but the fabric alone made me want to share this :) It's a definite win as I've already worn it for most of this week!
