It’s all about layering in the colder months, so this pattern is a great one to have. A fitted body can be worn under your clothes and it won’t move out of place because of the snap crotch closure. Choose from a crew neck or turtle neck band which will look great under dresses and tops. The pattern also includes a close fitting skirt.
A pair of loose fitting straight trousers is a must have all year round. But for autumn this pair would look great in a lightweight denim or a triple crepe. The pattern features an elasticated waist, big front pockets and back patch pockets.
