Firstly, I cut the neck wider and deeper and finished the cuffs. But the length was still meh and felt really unflattering. Having seen so many of the Megan Nielsen Briars online I thought I would try a similar hemline to see how it looked. Normally I do not like a high-low hem at all, so I am not sure kind of madness made me cut into my fabric without thinking! However, I love my new snuggly sweater!!
Since finishing it I have been wearing it to death. I really like it over the top of my Tiramisu dress but it also works over a long top with jeans.
Sorry for the frowning, our sun is super bright!
Construction-wise there is nothing fancy, I sewed all the pieces together with my overlocker only, and then finished the hems and neck by simply turning them under once and finishing with a twin-needle. It came together in about an hour even with all the hacking!
Have you ever started something and then just hacked it to get a result quite different from the original?
