There are actually a lot of us out there that make similar items. Katwise, Enlightened Platypus, Green Oak Creations, and myself to name a few.
You did an amazing job on yours from what I can see. I will have to admit that there is absolutely no way I would ever be able to afford a $400-$900 coat no matter how fabulous it is. Which is probably why we all started to make these in the first place. Yes there is a lot of work that goes into it, but if you love what you do then it shouldn't matter as long as there is someone out there that loves it too (and can afford to love it).

Yes, I'm new to this site so please don't be too angry for my little input. Cheesy

Personally I like yours more, Id be more likely to wear it since its tamed down (theres alot of craziness that I will wear but her sweaters are not one of them Tongue)

It's amazing how much patience you develop when someone will pay those prices!

When I got to your quote, I said, "That is CORRECT!!!!"
Money surely makes the hands sewing freely and easily with time. LOL

Great job on your sweater.

This is my first post as well and want to say beautiful job and thank you for the inspiration.
Since seeing your post I have made two of these "inspired by katwise" sweaters. SO much fun to put together

a) way to give props to katwise... i'm so glad i got to see her stuff...
b) i want to make like a million of these sweaters. my mom always gives me terrible sweaters, and now i have an idea what to do about this issue!

I , too, am a long time admirerer of KatWise crafts and also never going to afford one!  Please, how do you get the stitching in these sweaters?  I can follow that htey are all cut up sweaters and pieced together for the pattern, but I have no idea how to get the look for the seams that makes these so unique, is it a regular sewing machine and embroidered over the top of it? or a special machine to join the pieces?  I would LOVE to make myself one of these!    although being brand new to sewing clothes, a rough idea of a pattern and assembly (pictures work, I'm a very visual person and I'm beginning to understand the basics when putting stuff together) would be much appreciated from anyone Smiley


beautiful sweater!!!! Smiley

i saw her sweaters a while back and i just love the pieced together look! i really wish i could make myself one but sadly my sewing machine has a whopping six stitches and i just dont feel that it would cut it Sad
