DIY Chic + Sexy Sweater
Clearly, I'm loving off-the-shoulder this season. I think baring my neck and a little shoulder while covering everything else is so feminine and sexy without being too much.
This project was cut and sewn in about an hour. It's a no-brainer pattern that I didn't even open my instructions for. I wanted a cozy black sweater to wear for a casual date night with hubby and this was right up my alley.
I used a black sweater knit from Micheal Levine's. The exact one I used is sold out, but I linked to a very similar one. It has a nice stretch to it, but not so much that it's see through or difficult to handle. I actually completed construction on my serger.
I did make a few adjustments to this pattern. I added about 6 inches to the collar. I added about 3 inches to the sleeves and about 5 inches to the front and back pieces. I wanted this to be more of a fitted tunic with extra long sleeves. I also did not do any of the gathering or hemming. This is why I was able to cut and sew it so quickly.
My necklace and earrings are from New York & Company. I mentioned in my last post that I scored some gorgeous accessories on the last store-wide sale. Their accessories are some of my favorites. My ring is from Rocksbox.
My denim is an old purchase from New York and Company that I never get tired of wearing. I decided to balance out my sweater with some loose denim and a comfy pair of shoes. This outfit is a win, win, WIN!
My shoes are from Zara that I bought about a year ago, more or less. I've linked to similar up top.
What's your ideal date night style?
