This is from Simplicity pattern 4097 - It was super easy to make, I didn't even follow the directions.  It probably took under an hour to make after I cut it.  I made it with a light weight grey wool, that is super itchy because I was too lazy to put the liner in.  It is okay with tights on though.  And if I don't let it touch me.

And here is a not very good picture of it on me.   The coat is Very Easy Vogue pattern V8123.

Now I think I am going to try the "Built by Wendy" pattern #4111.  Making clothes keeps me out of trouble  Wink

Thank you!   The painting was done by my friend/old roomie Jackie, and I kind of made her leave it here when she left.  I traded her one of my paintings, but I definitely got the better deal!  I have always wanted to go to topshop, we don't have them in Canada.  I don't even know if they are in the States?  But I love their stuff I see in pics, so that is cool that my jumper looks like it is from there Smiley

Great job! I love the jumper, it looks so 60's retro. I can't believe it was so easy, I might have to try it!

If you do try it, my advice would be to put a shorter zipper in it.  it calls for a twenty inch zipper - but if you are five foot four, like myself, it is way too long.  I ended cutting off six inches of the bottom to hem it to that length too.

It's really cute. Jumper's are alwyas cute.
You could always go back and line it...I think....
What pattern did you use?

simplicity pattern 4097.  I could go back and line it, but sometimes it just takes a while for me to get used to wool again.  I have cute itchy wool mitts that I forget itch after a week, I think it will be the same thing.  And I'm lazy. Cheesy
