And we’re back with the light grey walls. I’m a big fan of Vanessa‘s style and sewing. I’m an even bigger fan of her photography – she captures the light masterfully and her daughter is gorgeous and seems so sweet.
As I’d hoped, it came together in a New York minute (actually more like a Seattle minute, which is a little slower), and it’s my favorite kind of style: modern with a nod to vintage.
I cut out the size 8, and in retrospect, I should have gone up one more size as this knit jersey was stubbornly un-stretchy. On the bonus side, it made sewing with it very easy. You might recognize this golden stripey fabric from this dress, a perennial favorite around here.
I cut out the sleeve cuffs incorrectly, so they’re not exactly matching, but I say it gives it character, and you probably didn’t even notice (see how I do that? It’s a sickness — I can’t help but point out what I did wrong).
The only change I made to the pattern was that instead of folding the hem twice, I serged and just folded once to finish the bottom hem. Otherwise, it seemed like it would be too short.
Such a sunny cardigan! Please ignore the rumpled linen pants (from here). The photoshoot took place in a New York minute as well, and ironing was low on my priority list…
Thanks again for including me in the Willow & Co fun, Vanessa!
