The Esther cardigan is such a great pattern! I stitched it up just like it was. No alterations! I took me only one weekend!
As I am always a huge fan of woolen fabric and most recently a huge fan of the esther pattern, it is not surprising that I love my new cardigan. :-)
Instead of a belt I fixed a band with buttonholes and some buttons at the inside.
The last pic shows the way how I gathered the seam of the shawl collar piece. Because of this and also while you are forming by pressing with your iron… you get that round shawl collar shape.
