February Outfit - Simplicity Pants and Top

Hi everyone, Finally I finished my pants and decided to sew a top to wear with it. Both patterns are from Simplicity, Misses pants 6231 size 36 and New Look 6225 size 34 with my own modification. The top has round neck and raglan sleeve and the pants has side zipper, front and back darts with 3 cm waistband. Pattern and adjustment: Top :  New Look 6225 B  size 34 with adjustment based on  my first top  but this time I skip the dart and lengthen the sleeve until my wrist. Pants :  Simplicity Misses Pants 6231  size 36 with adjustment based on my muslin. Make smaller waistband, 3 cm wide. Shorten the crotch depth in both front and back pieces 3 cm. Reduced the length at the knee area 8 cm in both front and back pieces. Reduced the sides 2 cm, I think in this case I should size down the pattern to 34. Added front darts, 9 cm from center front, 1.5 wide with 12 cm long. Finished with hem allowance 3 cm. Materials: 2 yards of woven fabric in deep green colour for the

I visited my local yarn shop in the beginning of January and brought home three types of yarns in different colours and brands. Then I decided to use my first choice - Schachenmayr Bravo in dark grey to make my son scarf. I think it isn't the best yarn to make scarf because it is an acrylic yarn but still can pamper the neck in the cold winter weather :) Materials: 1.5 skeins of Schachenmayr Bravo  color 08319 - dar
