For the longest time i’ve wanted to alter the Briar to have a sweeping swing back – and this winter i finally did it! I’m so happy with how this turned out. This is a pretty good example of my winter uniform this year, i’ve been sick a lot and having comfortable pieces in my wardrobe that still look stylish was a real must for me. It’s dramatic but also really comfortable – hows that for winning!
I honestly wish it was possible to show you how amazing this fabric is in real life. It’s a silk cotton knit – if you can believe that! I’ve never seen anything like it before. I must admit i’m a bit precious about it and handwash because it feels so special. I found it at my favourite knit store KnitWit.
Anyway, if you’d like to see how easy it is to alter the Briar sewing pattern to create a dramatic swing back, heres how!
