This time round it was in form of the latest Burda magazine and one of the project I loved. It’s a lovely cardigan, my must have spring item.
As I always have an abundance of fabrics in my fabric basket, it was just matter of time until I selected the right one and started on the project. I didn’t use the Butda pattern for my cardigan, I created my own, but the initial inspiration was from the magazine.
Some time ago, I bought lovely blue lace. I did not know what I was going to use it for but I knew then and there, it would be for something interesting. The lace stretches a little and that is great as I could make the pattern fitted.
It did not take me that long to make the cardigan, cutting it out of the lace was perhaps the most difficult part, making sure that the lovely edges were where I wanted them to be. I finished it off with blue ribbon in the same colour around the neck and handstitched the edges of the cardigan.
It was easy to make and I cannot wait for more sunny days when I will start wearing my new cardigan. It will be great with a skirt, jeans or over a dress. And because it is fitted, it flatters the figure too.
