One of the big reasons why I love reading sewing and craft blogs is finding out about free sewing patterns, and reading people's reviews, suggestions and comments about sewing them up. Plus checking out photos of the finished item too of course! So when Lara at Thornberry posted about the Swoon Scarf Neck Cardigan, I was very excited- it was just what I was looking for. I have a similar RTW cardi, and was thinking about trying to draft a pattern from it. But no need, because the Swoon cardi is just right! Nice drape, relatively easy to sew - all done on the overlocker, and good for a range of fabrics.
I have worn the first quite a few times already- I had been searching in op shops for a nice "neutral" cardi or jacket for a few months, having identified a gap in my wardrobe. Well, now I have 2 handy neutral tones- a latte shade, and pale grey. And I just made a black one this morning too, ' cos you can never have too many black cardi's/ jackets! The photos are not very flattering, and the flash on my phone ( with a 10 year old photographer) gives a weird pinky glow for some reason...but at least you can see the shape of the jacket better than if it was on a coat hanger!
