Snuggly wool, extra long arms, slouchy turtleneck. How can you not love it? This fabric is from Gorgeous Fabrics. It is charcoal gray wool on one side and off-white rayon on the other.
The Gorgeous Fabrics site says you can handwash and hang dry. I wash everything that says that on my delicate cycle. If I had been thinking I would have realized that the wool side would shrink and the rayon side would not. You can see all the ripples in the fabric because that is exactly what happened. The two fabrics are not fused together, they are actually loosely stitched together. When one shrinks and one does not, you get some pretty big ripples.
I needed a white turtleneck more than a gray but the gray side looked better after the wash. The white side just looks wrinkly and the gray side look very textured.
I love this big collar; very dramatic. This is just my Jalie 2005 t-shirt with the neckline and collar from the BWOF 08/08 #118 tunic I made last week.
I have a RTW shirt that has this sleeve treatment and I really like it. It is just a long cuff added to the end of the sleeve. I made these sleeves extra-long too so it's super cozy.
I apologize for the weird-ass pictures too. I'm not sure how one misplaces a tripod but I seem to have done exactly that. It is always in my sewing room but I haven't seen it since before we went hunting.
