Hepburn Turtleneck - Itch to Stitch

First time I made the Hepburn Turtleneck  was in March last year, testing the pattern for Kennis from "Itch to Stitch".
I made then two of them and both are still quite often worn. I kept the pattern on sight to be sure I will not forget to make more. And now after almost one year I finally made two more Hepburns. 

I made size 6 blending to size 4 from the waist down. Further no changes . The fabric on both is a soft sweater knit. 

This is very fast sewn. I think that in one hour you are done, from cutting to wear it. That of course if you are not going to choose a striped fabric with all kind of different small stripes. The right side is almost perfect matched, the left side not so much, oh well...nothing to stress about ...hahaha.

Everything is sewn on the overlocker and the hems are done with the twin needle. Love a fast project with a very low failure percentage :). The fit is really nice, I think I could make a FBA on a next one. I love the fit on the shoulders, something that I need to adjust almost every time. 

I am not sure about this color on me, but this fabric is so lovely ,soft and perfect for this pattern.

Very happy with this two pieces. Next, I just finished two skirts, a pattern testing for Designer Stitch, the designer brand from the Bridget top. Next week is going to be released and I will blog then about them. On my table now is a dress   from Knipmode  2/2015, made a muslin and a few adjustments, but still not sure about it .We will see...
