It’s getting to be the time of year where I start over thinking holiday outfits. I literally have one event to really dress up for and yet I generally plan at least three outfits.
When the tester call came out for the Lulu Dolman Sweater from Petite Stitchery my thoughts went to this gorgeous green sweater knit and….burgundy faux leather pants. Obviously. Fancy sweater for my fancy pants!
Lulu is great for this time of year because it’s designed for sweater knit, of which my hoarding has been previously documented. The hem and neck are finished with binding instead of hemming or traditional neckbands – especially handy for those super light weight knits that are prone to unraveling.
I love that the curved hem is really dramatic in the back and a little less so in the front. It gives great coverage.
Oh, and as an added bonus. Petite Stitchery is also releasing a super quick and easy free tutorial on making this blanket scarf.
Speaking of coverage… I made a second one in this oh so pretty french terry that I bought from Sincerely Rylee last spring. Just yesterday I wore it to help out in my daughters second grade classroom. If you haven’t spent a lot of time in a second grade classroom you should know it involves a lot of crouching. Shirts that are long in the back are essential.
Lulu is on sale now for $7 then it’s dropping to $6 for Black Friday then dropping AGAIN for Small Business Saturday for $5! BUT the first 50 customers can get it for and extra 10% off with the code LoveOurFans10.
P.S. The faux leather pants are the SOS Pants from Patterns for Pirates
