Thoughts on this sweater:

  • Sleeves grew after blocking. Next time, I’d shorten them a little or consider 3/4 sleeves. They cover my hands now.
  • Bust and shoulders are a little bit big, too. Next time, maybe I’d try making a smaller size and decreasing less under the bustline? Waistline fits great.
  • Love the grosgrain ribbon on the button bands. Great idea. Keeps them from stretching out or flipping outwards, or stretching and growing.
  • Would look best with full skirts and high-waisted skirts. There’s too many layers here with the jeans and the top and the cardigan all hitting at different points on my body.
  • Love the Gilded colour!

8/7 started the bottom ribbing - almost done the body!
In-progress photos taken on the dress form at this point. Colour looks way better in real life - more golden yellow, less lemony.

8/26 finished and blocked. Still need to pick buttons, fun!

9/23 picked the perfect buttons, sewing on grosgrain ribbon to strengthen button band and still need to get snaps.

11/16 finally finished sewing on the buttons and snaps! I swear it shouldn’t have taken that long, but that’s life! Photos coming soon…

…have plenty more notes but on paper, will update soon!
