Description

I got this piece of Chinese silk fabric at holidays in Maldives and I wanted to make a loose jacket or something alike. I chose to make a cardigan.

This is the time when I visualized the project wrong. At the beginning I tried the longer version as the pattern was. Then I cut the backside but the length in front still was too bohemian and looked as for a fortune teller. At the final version I have cut the front edge in a round shape.

The look still is too bohemian for every day but perfect for festivals.

    i actually love it, even more so because it looks like a bohemian :D the print of your fabric is just super awesome! the final result looks great on you, i’m sure you’ll turn people’s heads towards you (in a positive way) in the festivals.
