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.
