Cheat Cheetah

Presenting my homage to Jungle January.

CheetI noticed there has been some pairing up, but your intrepid explorer ventured out alone,  sticking to well trod paths and furnishing a cowl neck top in fine fake fur, baby cheetah printed. Sleeves are a dense black stretch lace.

My pattern is intended to be cut on the bias. I only had a small remnant of fabric, so I messed about holding drapes at various angles, before settling on simply cheating. Its on straight grain and the cowl doesn’t seem to have suffered.

All fabric was from stash, construction time a leisurely hour and a half. I  love cowl neck tops for quick results.

(A hanger shot, as its in a daughter’s size, now packed and flying off.)

    One of my favorite knit tops has stretch lace long sleeves…so comfy and good for covering less than wonderful upper arms. Your top will look good with just about anything!!!!
