When I see things like this, it makes me want to rip my sleeves off and knit some new ones. Like I said yesterday, I love mixing media. I feel like tiny details like, ‘oh yeah I sewed this dress, and knit the sleeves’ make it EVEN BETTER than just handmaking something. Details are everything.

In addition to adding some fun elements to an existing garment, I also came across this cap sleeve lattice top knitting pattern. Again, from purl soho. I swear I don’t work for them, I just love all of their stuff! I feel like it’s rare to find fashionable knitting patterns, and this one is done so well!
I could seriously live in this thing in the summer. The pattern looks pretty great, but I think that I would modify it to be knit in the round, to eliminate the seaming. I could also see a version of this in 2 colorblocked colors as well, or half in neon. So many options!
