Made using a blue/grey mystery fabric given to me by a friend… and using the directions for the “wearing a square” design in the Japanese pattern book Pattern Magic 2, by Tomoko Nakamichi. The front closure is with an open-ended zip.
This is a super easy pattern, and I am very happy with this cute little cardigan. My only advice to others making up this pattern; I “drafted to my own measurements”, as advised, but the directions give a measurement of 20cm for the sleeves; all sizes… I recommend checking your own forearm measurement before cutting out… I added a few cm and am so glad I did! I don’t have big arms, but 20cm is a pretty small measurement which I suspect would be uncomfortable for most people…
The dress underneath is made using Burda 8511, a basic sheath dress pattern, out of a tobacco coloured wool mix.
Thickish blue/grey fabric, with only a teensy amount of stretch to it. Open ended zip
