A new fabric arrived at my house and I couldn't quit touching it. This sweater knit was amazingly soft and I knew I needed to add it quickly to my winter to spring wardrobe.
I added 2" to the length of the sweater but it still seemed too short for me. I had just a bit of fabric left, just enough to add a bottom band for the sweater. It was just a bit shorter than the bottom width of the sweater, perfect it drew in the bottom edge for a tighter fit at the hips.
Here is a better look at the waistband.
It seems the fashion emphasis is on sleeves and this pattern showcases a dramatic sleeve
I added an inch to the sleeve length but I ended up taking that extra inch off. I was amazed at this as I have long arms and an inch sometimes just isn't quite enough. Pleasant surprise.
Here is the best picture of the sweater, I noticed while taking the pictures, I didn't have the neckline sitting quite right.
I really liked sewing this pattern, it was quick but fun to make and I always love a v-neck.
One last picture, I thought I would sit down for a couple of pictures, but Junior had other ideas and about pushed me off the steps!
