Have you seen the Named Magena sewing pattern? It’s a fringed jumper pattern and I adored it at first sight.
The only difference is I made it into a dress first. I used an abstract black & bronze jersey for the yoke section and black jersey for the rest of the outfit. Both fabrics are from my stash. YES!!! Happy to be stash busting!. I owned absolutely no fringe so a happy girl I was when I managed to track down this metallic bronze fringe to go with it. I have not made anything in black for a long while and absolutely loved the combo! This is my first time sewing with Named sewing patterns so I thought I might need some time to get use to it. However, this pattern was SO fast and easy to sew that I made two versions back to back.
This is a dress I totally enjoy wearing! And the fringe is just so in trend now. Here’s a phone photo hubby took one weekend when I paired it with gladiator sandals. You can’t see from the photo but my nails were painted bronze too. Totally matchy-matchy.
And after sewing up a dress version by simply lengthening the pattern pieces and doing without the waistband, I sewed a jumper version without fringe. The white and the galaxy print came from the same scuba knit fabric embossed with a quilted finishing. The white is the reverse but I used it anyway.
I totally love this edgy sportswear inspired jumper and am actually thinking of sewing a matching bottom for this jumper using the anima pant pattern. What do you think?
