For my mother-in-law for Christmas! I was so excited about this one :) I used Simplicity 3969. I added a little bit of ribbon trim on the pockets, and meant to add some around the sleeves and/or neckline, but I didn’t have time. I finished them Christmas Eve around 1 am :)
Other changes I made- I lined the sleeves for softness, and increased the width of the facing again for a little extra softness around her neck. The backside of chenille is not all that soft…
The sleeves ended up way too big, but mostly because of the weird shoulders. They came way down her arm (more than is normal). Otherwise, the fit was pretty good! I hope she gets some use out of it.
See my blog for more info.
