I was in need of tops for fall, a cardigan to wear at work as it is often chilly (I can't keep throwing on the hoodie when I get cold) and a new pair of jeans to wear at work for Jeans Friday. We have a casual dress code at work so these items will work with slacks already on hand. Lekala 5717 Soft Wool Mantle
I love my fleece cardigan and will wear it a lot. It has a cozy feeling and is warm. Vogue 7608 Sandra Betzina Jeans
I have made these jeans a few times before. They fit more like trousers and are comfortable. Not too tight to wear to work. Grainline Studio 31002 Scout Tee
For the fall I wanted tops with longer sleeves, but not long sleeves, so I added an additional 6" to the sleeve length. I made two tees. One was a polyester woven challis and the other was a polyester knit. This pattern is for a woven. There is a great tutorial on the Grainline Studios Grainline Studio Knit Scout Tutorial website for knits, which was a big help. The tee is loose fitting, so it looks just as nice in a knit.
This is the first time I have entered a pattern review contest, finished my items and completed the entry reviews.
