Description

I wanted to make a yellow sweater and found this pattern in Burda 01/2015. I have adjusted the pattern since I wanted to have it shorter in front and longer at the back. I made the same shape for the stripes, but all in the same color this time.. I’ve top stitched the seams with twin needle, and also at the top of the sleeves, but it’s not so easy to see on the pics. I like the neck I made for my sweatshirt dress and made the same for this sweater. I’m looking forward to wear my ☼ – sweater :-)

    Something bright in the middle of winter! I love this sweater so much! It’s very elegant, spring-like and sexy :) Did you cut the panels separately and then sewed them together or you just topstitched to created “the panel” effect?

      Thanks Inna! We need “cheering up” colors in the winter :) The panels are cut separately, so maybe I will make one with color blocking too..

    Great job, and a great top, the color is outstanding on you. The details- the quilting on the neckline, the top stitching is subtle but lovely. I do the same thing with polar fleece and flatlocking of seams. It also teams very nice with your jeans and hiking boots. I live in clothing just like this.

    Oh, what a great shape you have made this top. It would be great for jogging in the colder weather when you can keep the neck warm, have a good neat shape and still keep the muscles warm! Love the sunshine yellow, the scenery and the top stitching.
