in monochrome

Hello!
*
I made a jersey top with a button closure (opening?) in the back. I wanted the rear neckline of the top V-shaped, so I used the pattern Balloon from TAMANEGI-KOBO and added an opening like we normally do for cardigans at the front center. It seems that the rear view made the top interesting. I also omitted the cuffs, to make this garment "funnier", and I love the result.

I also made a pair of slim pants in black, using Stretch skinny pants from Pumila, my perfect pants pattern.
(The post for my first pair is here as well.)

  3. Beautiful! I like the changes you made to the design. I hope you can pop it on/off over your head, though, so you don't need someone else to button or unbutton you. :)

    Your top is gorgeous, I love it! Very interesting with the buttons at the back. The pants look really well fitting and comfortable too.
