I saw a similar cardigan at Urban Outfitters but the quality of the knit material was terrible so after a visit to Mood I found this very soft wool and silk blend I decided to make it. The contrasting ivory fabric is from my stash, it's probably a blend of some sort but I can't remember. It drapes quite well. It was also the perfect occasion to start sewing knit with my new toy :It's my first serger so I definitely need practice and my first seams are hum hum... slightly distorted...Anyway I LOOOOOOVE the result of this cardigan ! I would wear it day and night if I could (or if I was living alone and had no witness).CIMG2075It's also a useful addition to my closet for something that is relaxed and office appropriate. Proof (thinking face) :CIMG2086The shape of the pattern is actually pretty simple. I'm entertaining the idea to draft the pattern in a CAD software and make it available. It would be a great application of the PAD System class I just finished at FIT.

CIMG2084The only thing I would change would probably be the shape of the collar, the notch is a little wide for my taste... I like this thing so much that I may actually do it again (which is not something that I do often).CIMG2072I'm just finishing a sewcation (sewing-vacation) so I have quite a few things to show, although FIT homework kept me busy making half muslins of gathered bodices (which are not really worth showing...), stay tuned !
