Twist Style Friday: Quill

Every Friday we feature one of the garments from the magazine in a post about styling. We suggest different ways to wear the garment in question using mock-ups from Polyvore. We encourage readers to tell us what they think about these outfits via our Facebook page or Twitter, and if folks want to make their own outfits, please tweet them at us with the hashtag #twiststyle. You can find all of the Style Friday posts here.


 


Howdy Twistfans. Lots of you will probably have your eyes on Sochi this week! Me, I have some complicated feelings about the Olympics, but if you're watching, I hope the folks you're cheering for do really well, and that you get tons of knitting done.

 

I spent the last two days at a conference on health, and left with a terrible cold! Is that irony? I think it's Alanis Morisette irony, not irony as classically defined. The combo of totally blizzardy weather here in Toronto and the current state of my sinuses has me really craving springtime. You'll see it in my styling, trust me. Or maybe I subconsciously used the colors of the Olympic rings?

 

This week we're looking at Quill, Kate's contribution to the Winter issue. Though I am going to take a little tangent here in case you missed the release of Kate's newest pattern, lovely Lacet socks that reference the lacing of pointe shoes. Let me show you them.

Pretty, right?? I can't wait to start on a pair. Anyways, back to the topic at hand- fashion! Let's have a look at this fetching vest.

Quill is simple, but stands out. It'sa great layering piece for transitional weather, and can fit with lots of styles of dress! Make it in a sheepy wool, and it's a perfect vest to wear over collared shirts or flimsy dresses. In a softer fiber blend, wear it right next to your skin like the coziest camisole. Better yet, make two.
