Oh, the Elliot Sweater!
Yes, I already have one of these hanging in my wardrobe, but I did tell you that I was going to make more… I really wanted to see what it would look like made up in something that was a little bit sheer.
I found this grey linen blend interlock at Spotlight (not on sale, unlike all the other stretchy knit fabrics that day), and while I really do like the way it looks, this certainly isn’t a top for the middle of winter. I also have to wear a little singlet under it, just for a dash of modesty.
I’m loving the slouchy fit and long lines of the Elliot, but I was also keen to try out the cropped length.
This is my favourite version! The crop hits at the perfect spot on my waist, allowing me to show off my high-rise Ginger Jeans.
I went for the shorter collar this time, and it’s just as nice as the tall one. You still get the look of a cowl-style collar, just without the bulk.
If you’re looking for a lovely, comfortable and cosy jumper for winter, I can highly recommend the Elliot. It’s such a quick sew, you’ll have three in your wardrobe before you know it!
