Something that is perfect to throw over that way too cute dress or blouse in order to get some symmetry!
This cardigan-jacket-kind-of-thing is made in a very thin and stretchy mock leather fabric (vegetarian living!). I made some leggings in that fabric some year ago, just around the time when that kind of thing was the last scream. I found some remnants and thought “Hey, why not take it a step longer and make a cardigan-jacket-kind-of-thing too!”. So I did.
I made the pattern by copying a cardigan at home made in knits. Then I just went from there and re-designed as it happened. I ended everything with bias-tape that I made from the same fabric.
