This was the first time I’d sewn a Wiksten pattern, but I decided I wanted to make it more winter-friendly, so I added long sleeves. I had to raise the armscye a little bit to match the length of my sleeve pattern’s seamline (just my basic, go-to knit sleeve from an old Burda pattern), but otherwise it worked well.
My style has definitely tended more towards the fitted end of the spectrum lately, so I’m not sure I like the enormous waist/hips on this, but it’s starting to grow on me. Overall, I’m a bit “meh” on the look, but my mom really likes it on me, so I’m willing to give it the benefit of the doubt for now!
