I only buy Vogue patterns when they have their $4.95 sale on. Living in Northern Ireland I have to pay $19 postage so I usually buy 6 or 7 at a time to make it worth my while. It's still loads cheaper that buying them here where they retail at £15 each! I've had this one in the pattern basket for a while so was really pleased to find a sweater knit that was extra cheap to try it out on. Once again, living in Northern Ireland I have to pay exorbitant prices for postage (or to the tax-man) for USA stuff, so was happy to find a German company (inside EU, so no taxes) that offer millions of fabrics and deliver within a few days - My Fabric.
Sometimes it is nice to do something easy and quick - it boosts confidence, sense of achievement and you get another item for the wardrobe!
I decided to add interfacing to the seams in the neck and collar - simply because of the stretch and thought that over time the stand-up collar would become a fold-over collar instead.
Within a few hours the top was done! Here it is displayed on Doris.
This is me in the jumper standing in front of my son's now empty toy cupboard. Sorry, no make-up or 'staging' of the photo shoot - it is Saturday after all.
Have a great weekend and thanks for reading.
