Simplicity 8982 - Zebra Print



Do see a garment by another sewist and immediately need to get that fabric and pattern?  Well this happened with this garment when Indoor Shannon posted hers on Instagram







Shannon has a great blog post on the her blog and her photos are so inspiring.  Mily Mae Fabrics'  zebra Hacci Knit  was still available after Shannon's post and I am happy to say, it is still available.    The fabric is soft and cozy and wonderful and wonderful to sew. 




Now the pattern, Simplicity 8982, which was a Sew Your View one month and the garments were all amazing.  This is one of those patterns, simple but such a statement.  The sleeves, neck and shape all combine for a great pattern.  The sleeves are my favorite, the volume with the wide cuff, perfect!


This pattern took about one hour to sew and I can't wait to make another one.  I am going to make the mock neck a bit taller or even more for a true turtleneck. 

Thanks Shannon for such great inspiration, hope you don't mind me copying  you.
