Oh, the Ease of Knits!

It's hard for me to imagine now but years ago when I first started sewing I was deathly afraid of knits! Oh, I would turn that pattern envelope over so fast to see the suggested fabrics and automatically rule out anything that called for a knit. Now, no fabric takes me to my happy place faster than a great knit. This outfit is comprised of two of my favorite knits, rayon jersey and ponte. The teal/animal print jersey from Sew Much Fabric is so cool! I love this unusual combination of a geometric pattern  over an animal print:

The pattern I used is my favorite knit tunic Vogue 8952. I've made this pattern so many times and never tire of it:

As for the pants, now here is some real love! This is my first make of the Style Arc Sailor Sue Palazzo Pants and I LOVE them!

This pair is made from a wonderful camel/grey reversible ponte knit from Sew Much Fabric  that I've had for a while. Perfect weight for these pants:

I absolutely love this outfit! So comfortable and made with these fabulous knits from Roz it makes me now want to rule out using any patterns made for wovens!

Thanks for stopping by and until next time, happy sewing!
