When Marte sent me her post she was a little worried that she interpreted the idea of the series a little differently - and I am glad she did!

This pattern is from a Belgian book, but I actually found out that this pattern was originally published in this Great British Sewing Bee book. This 5 stars project was difficult to sew but I'm so happy with the result! I'm sure that this cardigan will become one of my favourite garments...
I combined a mint green woolen fabric with a white cotton one (with some little green, yellow and orange dots) that I bought in Berlin on my last city trip. The combination is perfect. When I first saw this pattern, I knew this fabric would be the perfect match. A color I've never worn before, but I think it suits me... Hope you feel the same?
Since I actually didn't dare to take my measurements I've just sewn the largest size! I did had to adjust the width at the end because it turned out too big. I had to make the shoulders smaller and took away 1 extra cm at the side seams. Here is where my pattern drawing skills became very useful.
I paired the cardigan for this romantic style with a handmade dress (from the same book) and my new sandals!
Thanks Jenya for inviting me to participate! You made me realise how fun it is to sew clothes for myself. I also learned that I will not show myself on my blog regularly. I will never become the new Trine! :)

Marte, we both have only made a couple of things for ourselves in the past, but you did what I was too intimidated to do - you made a jacket! A gorgeous jacket I must add. This colour does look very good on you. Thank you for sharing this project with us today.
