Navy Sweater

This sweater is my first attempt at a 100% serger/coverlock project ! and it’s a success. I chose “Le Confortable” from MLM Patrons, I took in the front and back pieces at the fold line by 0.5cm to make it less loose fitting, and shortened the hem by 4cm. I love the midweight jersey that gives this navy allure to the top. This sweater is perfect for the cold week-ends, and is part of my F/W collection. More pictures and details on by blog
