- super popular mock neck style,
- cropped hem that is not to short, not to long; it's just right,
- fitted sleeve and armhole, so you can easily layer pieces,
- and a super comfy bamboo/cotton blend knit to keep you warm.
The classes I teach at the studio are usually with woven fabrics, but knits are a whole different weight class with its own set of challenges, and I definitely was put through the ringer when fitting the shoulder area of this top. Before this, I didn't have a ton of experience with knit fabric so I relied heavily on my notes from fashion school, as well as doing research in clothing stores to figure out all their secret tips and tricks! Through trial and error (and three samples later) I arrived at our final product.
Through frustration and desperation, I persevered. It is a piece I am proud of, and will happily put into the record books as a garment I will not soon forget. Less than a year ago we released our products to the public, so Moonstruck is still a baby of a business. Despite the short time, I felt like the entirety of my learning has all been put to the test, and I cannot tell you how many times I've gone to bed still mulling over the day's obstacles. There will always be rough patches on one’s journey and I am no exception. I’ll be sure to learn more and pass on the knowledge from my brain to yours. If you would like to stay in the know on any new Moonstruck news, follow our Instagram or Facebook! Can’t wait to show you what I get up to next!
