This is actually not my own design, it’s a copy of a shrug I got a few years ago at one of the big highstreet clothing chains. It’s quite a clever design though!
The pattern is basically a T, and there are only two seams. It folds perfectly flat, and it’s actually a nice shrug too!
I’ve graded the pattern to fit size 30-46, see the size-chart on the pattern and in the instructions to be sure about the size (it’s slightly different from the Burdastyle size chart).
Cotton jersey, a GENUINE 1980’s fabric that I got in the early 90’s, left at my parents place when I moved out, and then forgot about. My mum gave it to me this easter and it’s actually back in fashion again!
I love the colour and it’s very comfortable to wear.
The best thing? I’ve got a few meters of it…. :-)
