How is it already the end of February!? Happy Saunio month! Confession: I really struggled with this pattern! It’s not really something I would choose to make on my own, and I’m also not a big layering person. I also struggled with finding the perfect fabric for this pattern. But that is why I love Project Sew My Style so much, it get’s me out of my fashion comfort zone…
While searching through nearly EVERY online fabric shop, I struggled with finding something that would transition well into spring. BUT I prevailed! While scrolling through Fabric Godmother’s website, I laid eyes on just what I was looking for. A beautiful aloe colored boiled wool; a perfect color for spring and the perfect weight and warmth for the seasonal shift. The color is just gorgeous. ANNNNDDD good news: Fabric Godmother is kindly offering 10% of all orders until March 25th using code “SARAPROJECT10”.
Back to this pattern. So I wasn’t sure about how I would like it… that is until I finished it. I LOVE this cardigan. The shape is super fun, it’s so cozy to wear, and the color brightens up every outfit.
I made up the size that worked closest with my measurements, and I love the fit. I sewed it all up in a single night, it’s super quick (and if you use a boiled wool, no seam finishing is needed!). I didn’t use interfacing because the wool is pretty thick, and it holds it’s shape well without it. I’m so excited to see everyone else’s version!
