I bought this zebra print knit in Spotlight when I found it in the remnant bin and thought it would be perfect for another Nettie bodysuit as it has a 2-way stretch – or is that 4-way stretch? Whatever, it stretches every which way!
Then the theme for this week’s Me-Made-May was “animals” and I thought this would be the perfect thing to wear.
I wore it for a 3 hour drive and it was so, so comfortable, and the perfect layering item for our current weather. I did start out with a Miette cardigan as well, but the weather proved to be too warm for it.
Not a lot to be said, this is just another Nettie, no changes made to the pattern, except I’ve started making the neckband about 3cm longer and this has the added benefit of not pulling the shoulder seams in quite so far.
Back to the Me-Made-May theme, here is the only animal I could find today. I will admit that there is something slightly disconcerting about having a kangaroo bouncing towards you, especially when trying to take selfies. The trick is to stand there with arms at sides, as raised arms mean “I want to fight you”! This one, however, is a bit of a pussycat and after an ear rub, he bounced off again.
In a nutshell: Closet Case Files Nettie bodysuit in a zebra print stretch knit. I am also wearing my zebra print undies made for Jungle January. Yoga pants are a Lutterloh pattern – I have about 4 pairs of these, all from different patterns, but they all look the same! Also wearing knitted socks.
