Animal Print + Easy Tee Raglan Pattern = Match!

For weeks now, I`ve had this great black and white animal print ponte knit in my stash without a clue as what to make of it! I thought it was a great idea when I bought it, and it still was when it arrived. But then I was like: "can I pull of an entire piece with only this animal print? Would that even work?!" So I just put it aside, waiting for the right pattern or idea to come along.
Eventually, I was more and more surtain that it would work just fine if I only could mix in a little neutral in there. Like black! I had a little left from when I made my second Perri Pullowe (not blogged yet. Have to get to it soon.....). It was just enough for 3/4 arms and the neckline+arm lining.

This pattern by the way, is GREAT! Super easy to print and patch up.  And you can make it in a million different ways. Go check out "Its Always Autum".







This is one of those patterns I will make again and again, for shure! The fit is perfect for me! I added a band on the bottom of the shirt so it gives a little extra "hug" around the hips.

Now, do you think the animal print is "to much"? Or just right? :)

  1. Den klæder dig virkelig godt - jeg kan også rigtig godt lide at du har valgt at sætte ensfarvede ærmer til. Super basismønster!

  4. Were you able to size down Autumn's pattern? I want to make a shirt like yours that is a size S-M. How can I adjust the pattern?
