BWOF 10/2005 - 114 Pullover

Continuing on my quick-to-make-non-dress sewing kick I made another version of this popular BWOF pattern.

I bought this brown/white sweater knit fabric at the textile market in Sham Shui Po, it was the last piece and I think cost the grand sum of HK$20 (about US$2.50).

This was super quick and easy to make, I did it all on my serger, apart from the topstitched seam at the collar, even the hem edges are just serged. A more modern finish or pure laziness on my part? The only other change I made to the pattern was to lengthen it by around 6 inches.

(I am wearing the black skirt from my previous post in these pictures, not that you can see much of it.)

Very stylish. Sometimes its great to do some quick projects rather than getting bogged down.

Very stylish top. Sometimes a quick project like this is the perfect lift. It looks really nice on you.

Cute top but honestly after all of your sharing of things you've found in the HK fabric market...you've got me desiring a trip to HK!

I can't believe that whole top cost about $2.50! Doesn't that sort of thing just make you love sewing?

This looks really cozy, but stylish (sometimes sweaters can be so frumpy). Love it!
