Pattern Release: Knitty First Fall “Gentle Teresa”

Gentle Teresa by Jean Chung / Model: Sophia Chung

Oh my… My pattern, Gentle Teresa, is now available on Knitty’s First Fall 2012 issue!

This vest was inspired by my mom’s old vest from a big chain store here in the US. She loved it so much that it was nearly falling apart after merely 3 years. So I took the sweater home with me and came up with this tunic vest pattern.

The type of fashion I pursue is greatly influenced by my mom. For my mom, it’s not always about colors or even style. It’s about creating flattering silhouette. My mom is a very petite woman and to elongate her silhouette and create an illusion of longer torso, her signature look is long, flowy, slightly oversized top paired with tight (jeans or leggings) bottoms, and high heels that match the bottom piece to further elongate the legs. This vest is shaped just the way my mom would love.

My style is much more eclectic and quirkier  than my mom’s, perhaps simply because of my age, but I still have these classic items that I wear over and over again. When I finished this sample for my mom in deep purple yarn, I had to write it out and make another one for me. :)

I do hope that a lot of people will enjoy this pattern!

  1. Love this! I just saw in yesterday in Knitty and I’ve already printed it out. I think I have the perfect yarn in my stash too. Thanks for making me excited to pick up my needles again.
