Hurrah, it fits 🙂 Well, this time I followed the instructions (doh!) and used an actual knit fabric… I know, amazing!
I’m so pleased with this. The colour is fab and makes a pleasant change from navy, yet still goes with loads of my current wardrobe. 🙂 This time I added an extra inch to the length and this made it feel a lot more elegant and comfortable on me. Because I’m quite curvy, I’m always nervous of unintentionally straying into ‘tarty’ territory, especially with knits, but this length really works for me. I made this purely for casual wear, but actually because of the longer length, it would be smart enough for work too.
It also only took me an afternoon to run it up, and that includes the cutting out. This never happens to me normally, despite what other bloggers say. I can imagine running up a few more of these in both other plain colours and some subtle, patterned knits 😉 There’s really not much more to say about this make, apart from that I can see myself using this pattern a lot for Autumn/Winter and I know I’ll wear them constantly. I’ve actually worn it every day since I made it, and it’s kept its shape really well too.
If you haven’t already got a Mabel in your life, I can thoroughly recommend that you add one soon 🙂
