I like making these sweaters. Each are one of. I don’t use a pattern. I simply let the materials I have on hand tell me how big and what direction to go.
There is always a very sweet spot for me when it comes to angora especailly 100%. It's soft, luxurious and warm. Soemtimes too warm and then hot! Unwearable. The beginnigs of this piece was just that. A long sleeve turtleneck 100% angora long sweater. Argh - who can wear such a thing? After cleaning, cutting and inspecting it he only thing to do was crop it into what started as a pullover vest. But then an adorable soft pink mohair lace was begging to join in. Viola! the sleeves and part of the collar.
The hem is comprised of 3 seperate new fabrics. The same net fabric in the hem is also in the collar.
Colors are true black, off white and pinks to blush.
Suggest dry cleaning.
