As a designer I like to play with patterns but still keep the outfit soft and feminine. With this outfit I kept it soft and playful, using the block blue of the jumper to draw out the blue in the checked trousers. The trousers are binded with blue bias binding on the outside to further emphasise the more prominent colours in the trousers. The trousers have two patch pockets on either side at the back with a pleat ascending into each, creating texture in the fabric. The merino wool jumper is knitted by hand. This jumper was my first hand knitted jumper I have ever created using wool from a local shop, which spins and dyes its own wool (World of wool). The sleeves are very dramatic coming out in a circular shape from the extended rib cuffs. The appliquéd heart is created through sewing into the jumper which creates small loops that can be knitted into. Adding extra layers of texture and another 3D effect.
