sweatshirt: Megan Nielsen Jarrah top, sweatshirt fleece from Style Maker Fabrics

skirt: Megan Nielsen Wattle skirt, rayon challis from Fabric Mart

Oh look, another Jarrah and Wattle combo, ha. After making a couple of Wattle skirts in shirting/quilting weight cottons, I’m absolutely loving how this rayon challis version turned out. So light and airy and floaty. It was a little bit difficult trying to match stripes perfectly for this bias cut version, with such a slippery fabric, but I’m pretty proud of how well it turned out. Another make that you’re sure to see again once spring and summer hit - its just screaming to be paired with an easy breezy tank!

But for now I’ve paired it with this Jarrah sweatshirt - view D. It has a funnel neck and split sleeve hem. I had to add a band at the hem because of a cutting error (whoops!), but it was a happy accident becuase I love it with the band! It’s made in a dreeeeeamy sweatshirt fleece. Seriously soooo soft and comfy on the inside. Funny - I never thought I was a funnel or cowl neck type of person. But out of all the Jarrah versions I’ve made, the two funnel neck ones are my favorites and most worn.
