I have been a fan of Katwise on Etsy for some time, her garments are simply, jaw droppingly gorgeous. Well, just look!!
I mean - just LOOK at it! Words fail me. Look at the awesome length of the hood! Look at that magical flare as Kat spins around! Look at the WONDEFRFUL colours! I simply must posess one! And this is Kat's house in the background of the shot - WOW!!
These have proved so popular, that they sell out pretty much immediately - however, Kat is now offering a tutorial in her Etsy shop which I eagerly snapped up for a mere $9 - it is a wonderful read full of photos, tips and insights into Kat herself. It's just as colourful as her wonderful clothing too - what an amazingly talented woman!
I don't know if I will ever get around to making one, although I'd love to for both myself and my daughter - however at the moment, I don't even own a sewing machine, let a lone a serger! Kat mentions in the tutorial that while it is possible to do it by hand, it will take a LONG time and the sweater pieces may unravel at the edges :O(
In the meantime, I will thoroughly enjoy re-reading this tutorial whenever I need a colour pick-me-up, will continue to make my own far more modest projects (hand sewn, of course!) from my felted sweater stash, and maybe one day down the line when I have all the necessary equipment, I'll be the talk of the town wearing my very own elf coat everywhere I go!
Kat is always so friendly the few times I have spoken to her via email, and I am in awe of her talents!
For an instant shot of colour and fun which is sure to make you smile, check out Kat's website and her Etsy shop. Happy browsing!
