One garment I collect and know I will wear again and again is a summer shrug or cardigan to wear over sleeveless tops, tunics and dresses on hot days. I cannot pinpoint the exact moment in my life when I realized that my days of wearing sleeveless clothes was over, but that is when I started to seek alternatives to sleeveless garments. A sheer shrug or cardigan is a perfect solution. V8975 has simple flattering lines, is fluid and drapey, can be worn open or tied closed, and both the style and the fabric allow the air to move.
My favorite kind of sewing is to wing it, making things up as I go - challenging and fun. I’ve been photographing our new collection of cotton kantha shawls, loving the soft feel and luminous - sometimes unexpected - color combinations.
Wanting something warm to wear, I decided it would be fun to try my hoodie pattern Butterick 6863 in flannel. The pattern is oversized so this continues my experiment with making this ‘designed for stretch knits’ in a woven.
