Well, well, well...

Remember this?
Sweater by Moth at Anthropologie, $98

And the sketch I drew of it in the dressing room of my local Anthropologie?

Well, in the latest issue of Threads magazine I saw the sketch for this jacket, Kwik Sew 3624,

that was similar to my sketch of the Moth sweater. I have to admit I would never have looked at the jacket twice if not for the sketch. The Kwik Sew version uses a lot more fabric and details; gathered pockets, drawstring bottom, and fuller sleeves. However, I'm sure a simpler version could easily be made.

Close up for better detail of the two layers.

I just bought that KS pattern after seeing it in Threads. It is so simple, but I wanted the pattern anyway! It's a perfect starting point for that Anthro sweater.

Oh, Anthropologie, they get me every time. That does look a like a really simple top to make. Was the anthro top a knit fabric or a woven?

It was a knit, a very thin knit actually.
