Anyways, all that blather is basically to say that I sewed a top. :D
Long-time readers who followed me over from my old blog might recognize this (though I am wearing it differently). I sewed this cardigan up back in January 2012 in a heavier-weight light grey fabric. I have no idea where that cardi went, but I'd received this exact yarn from Stacie in late 2011/early 2012 to duplicate her spotted version of this cardi. Erm, I'm a little late, but glad that I finally got it done! This is going to be a great light-weight addition to my wardrobe. :)
Fabric: Stretch jersey knit burnout (rayon/polyester)
Size: Small? That's what my Pattern Review post claims. This cardigan ran really big, and I believe I cut a small and graded out at the hips. Despite the fact that my body measurements from 4.5 years ago placed me in the L to XL category. Oh Big 4 patterns, why you so ease-y.
Mods: No idea. I just cut out from the pattern I traced out way back when. Oh, but I did hack off the sleeves at about 3/4 length and finished them with a strip of fabric sewn on. And I didn't hem it because I'm not sure how to do it without ruining the drape, and it's curling in a cute way anyways.
Have you ever finished a long-planned or half-sewn project that's been sitting around ready to be completed, and wondered why the heck you waited so long?
