Winter 6 Pack Pieces 4 and 5
This 6 pack has been super fun to complete and I know it will end up with more pieces than my original plan that looks like this.
3 tops (1 solid and 2 print)
1 layering piece
THE KNIT PANTS: are my fourth piece. The are very simple no whistles or fuss elastic waist pants. I want something as comfy as yoga pants but a little more dressy. Lutterloh Supplement 272 #201 fit the bill perfectly and and made up in a nice double knit from fabric.com have allowed them to wash up nicely.
Every woman needs a pair of simply comfortable pull on knit pants.
A double knit bought from fabric.com over a year ago.
Color blocked knit top with trim.
Lutterloh is based on your bust and hip measurement. Your pattern is drafted out using these two measurements. So ideally if your bust and hip are 50cm to 140cm the system should work for you.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
No due to design changes. But looked how I hoped it would.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Lutterloh has no instructions.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I was looking for a knit top that could be developed into a new tnt dartless t-shirt. This top had promise. The pieces are well drafted and go together nicely. Dislike I not happy with the sleeve length and won’t be surprised if I lob them of sometime in the near future. Even for a short sleeve top they hit at a odd place.
The top is a good wardrobe builder. If you would like to read more about how I used it in my winter 6 pack read my
