Okay so here I am back in the land of being behind with my blogging. Ugh! I took these photos over a month ago! Anyway, this post is going to be quick and dirty, with lots of photos. This is my Toaster Sweater 2 by Sew House 7. For the details, scroll on down ;)
Okay the nitty gritty:
- Fabric: this is a dreamy, double brushed poly knit from LA Finch Fabrics (I think there are sold out of blue but they do have black and green). It feels amazing but is probably a bit too thin and fluid for the neckline of this pattern. Still, I love it!
- I chose a size M based on the finished measurements. I made no changes and as you can see the sleeves are long, but the top itself is quite short. If I lift my arms up, you can see my belly at the sides. Next time, I will lengthen it.
- The only part I got hung up on was the neckline, I didn't notch super carefully, and I didn't fold it down the right amount the first time. I don't know why the instructions confused me, but they did. Anyway I unpicked and re-did it and it's fine. The funnel neckline is really cool, but I'm not sure it's me. I want to fiddle with it a lot, but making this pattern up in the recommended fabric, might help. ;)
There we go, a quick and dirty post. If I've forgotten to tell you anything or you have more questions, please don't hesitate to ask! I hope your February is going well so far!
