Adventures in garment construction. (Plus random thoughts, photos of interesting places and stuff I've made!)
I've made the top from this pattern a bajillion times; it's one of my summer favorites.But I haven't tried the cardi yet. It looks like there's a LOT of fabric in the front there; does it feel heavy/overwhelming? Or is that just how the light is bouncing off the color?
There is a lot of fabric in the front. And the back if fairly short, Its not for everyone but my friend B loved a black one I had made and wanted some other colours.If you wear it loose as per the photo then its very long and full at the front and much shorter at the back.
I have a similar Vogue cardi that sorely needs to be replaced before it utterly disintegrates and have been trying to decide if I want to make the Vogue again or give the simplicity a try. Mayhap I shall pull both patterns out and see how similar they are... The gold one is beautiful, btw. ;-)
