I loved this simple shift pattern from the 2/2013 Burdastyle issue # 118. However, I couldn’t find fabric that I liked which would be similar to what was used in the magazine’s photos. I did stumble on this wool boucle and apart from the fraying it was easy to work with. I didn’t add the little fringe detail because I just didn’t care for it.
No zippers or buttons and a snap to sew! I’ve already worn it twice to work with a cardigan.
