Made from Lace Cardigan pattern 03/13 #107A. I used a size 42 and lengthened it 2 inches from neck to waist because I have a long torso. The fit is perfect. I found attaching the neckband a little tricky And I ended up using a narrow three thread serger seam. I used a very sheer lacy floral print polyester from Len’s Mill Store in Waterloo. I used some old vintage buttons recycled from an old blouse for closing and I hand-worked the buttonholes because the band was so narrow and the fabric quite slippery. . I added some hot-fix Swarovski crystals because everything is better with a bit of sparkle. I also made jersey Cowl top 03/13 #128C to wear with the cardigan. Together they make a nice light twin set perfect for spring.
