Hepburn Turtleneck by Itch to Stitch

Here is my Itch to Stitch * test # 2.  First was the Zamora Blouse.

This is the Hepburn Turtleneck.  It is the cutest little turtleneck!  I used the 3/4 sleeve option, which on me ends just below the elbow.  The fabric is this one from JoAnn Fabrics.

This turtleneck is perfect with my recent Simplicity 2215 skirt.  In fact, it is my favorite top to wear with the skirt.  The form-fitting top balances the pleats on the bottom half nicely.

This was actually going to be my muslin, but I was so happy with the result that it is the only one I made for testing.

  1. I love it! You are right - it's perfect with that skirt! I never thought of doing muslins with a "usable" fabric - I think that's brilliant! :-)

    1. Yep, people call it a "wearable muslin." The idea is to use a fabric that you would be happy with the end product, but obviously not so expensive that you'd be crushed if it didn't work out.

  2. Nice top and you are so right about the top balancing the full skirt.
