The second make of the SewMyStyle Sewalong!
This time it was the Saunio Cardigan of Named Clothing. It is my first try with the Named patterns, and to be honest I am a bit intimidated by the patterns. They are very hip and have a lot of constructive details, and I always consider them out of my league (read: comfort zone).
The same with the Saunio Cardigan: a short but boxy/ oversized cardigan. Very simple, and could be elegant with a thin, very long hipster girl who likes to play with her silhouet. Everything I am not 🙂
(#momcore of the non hipster kind is more me)
But I tried the Saunio Cardigan (a heck why not) and I was pleasantly surprised. It kinda suits me!
Fabric is some coupon I found at De Stoffenloods (it’s located next to my work. OMG. It’s a good thing I work together with my boyfriend so I’m not tempted to visit it every lunchbreak. It would be too obvious, gheghe)
It was my first make on my serger. And I had So.Much.Fun!
I am a lazy sewer: if it’s not really necessary (in my opinion) I won’t do it. But now I did something the pattern didn’t call for: I topstitched the neckline.
Ok, fine I admit it’s not that big of deal in the real world, but you know: #lazysewer.
First I thought I needed a closure/snap/hook&eye or something, but after some reconsideration I decided not to. It looks good without and is the most flattering.
I made size 38/42 and it is a quit roomy cardigan. But the arms are good, it’s just the body.
Here are some pictures! I think I could haved sized down, but then again, the arms would be too tight, I think. But for now I am very pleased with my first serger/locker- and out-of-my-comfort-zone make.
Especially when I’m sitting (at my desk/at dinner / at whatever) it’s a really nice (almost) suitstylish cardigan. But standing/ moving I stil find it boxy and not to flattering. But.. I DO wear it. (i know: i’m weird)
So #sewmystyle for the win!
Did you make the Saunio Cardigan yet? What are your thoughts of this cardigan?
