Call it procrastination, but yesterday I worked on a completely different project than what I had in mind. In a few weeks I have an article due for an upcoming issue of Sew News. While I can’t share all the details of what it’s about I figured I could show you the finished product since it isn’t an original design…. plus I love how it turned out so much.
For this project I used Seamwork’s Oslo – one of my favorite patterns that they have come out with so far (this is at least the third one I’ve made, too). As for the fabric, I couldn’t resist getting the Nicole Miller Lacy Sweater Knit that I found at Joann’s. Unfortunately, I didn’t think about pattern matching when I picked this material and found myself spending a great deal of time making sure everything lined up correctly when I cut this one out. The only change I made to this one is omitting the buttons. I really think that it looked best ‘less coat-like’ and more as a cozy cardigan. Now I am wishing I could wear it and not have to send it off…. I can see myself wearing this over the weekend with a pair of leggings an some big boots!
