Instagram and the sewing community...the perfect match for an abundance of inspiration! Right?
I treated it as a birthday gift to myself...and I'm so glad I did!
I made the #2 toaster option, in the end falling for the wide neckline and the mitered side vents/hi-low hemline...
The fabric is this amazingly soft and drapey sweater knit that I got on sale at my local fabric shop. Initially it was to be a sweater for Henry as he was the one who picked it out, but hey...there have been plenty of times (too many to count really) where it's gone the other way around, fabric ear-marked for me ends up as children's clothes. So this switch around seemed fair. Plus, there's still plenty left for something for him...he's a tiny guy!
I love the drape of this sweater knit with this pattern. It makes the sweater so easy and comfortable to wear.
It makes it perfect for both "dressier" occasions, but also perfect for everyday "hiking" wear!
This sweater has gotten a ton of wear this past month. I'm glad I caved! I'm thinking I might even need to make a super light weight summer time version sometime soon!
