Blank Slate Sora

Thursday, April 5, 2018

Typically, when the Texas Bluebonnets start blooming, I am all about sewing up something for my kids and getting them in among the flowers. As soon as I finished this Blank Slate Sora Sweater, I decided I'd be the one in the Bluebonnet photos this year. 

This is my second Sora Pullover, but the first one I have sewn. You can see the one Melissa made for me here. I can certainly count my blessings that Melissa also gifted the pattern pieces she adjusted based on my height making this a pretty quick sew. 

I highly recommend watching the How to Sew a Shawl Collar video. The video shows more than just the collar, it is practically a full sew-along.

I said it before, but I'll say it again; the silhouette of the Sora Pullover is ideal for my rectangular figure. The gussets at the side hems give great shaping. How many of the same tops can I own without being weird? I am obsessed! If anyone has similar style recommendations for me, send them my way! I'm also looking for inspiration for hacking the pattern for different looks. 

The fabric I used is a very lightweight french terry from Joann Fabrics. The smooth texture and drape give the top a sweater knit feel.
