Mustard cardigan ... Burdastyle 03-2013-107

Wow - a post once a month at the moment.  I really need to pick up my game!  I have made a few things, but getting them blogged about has not been happening.

A while back I made the Burdastyle cardigan 03-2013-107.  It has been a popular pattern and I did read the reviews and went up a size, but think I could still go up more!    Not much chance of buttoning this sucker up!



I have not worn it much since I made it as it has got too cold.  I think it is more suited to wear over a sleeveless top and I have photographed it here over a very long sleeved top and it shows every wrinkle from the top underneath.  I had to spend a bit of time tugging and smoothing to get these photos! 

The fabric is a lovely wool jersey bought at the Fabric Store in Brisbane.


I am picturing wearing it over my blue spotted silk top - pictured in this blog post.  I do like this cardigan and think I will use it a lot as the season starts changing again.  Sometimes garments take a little while to work out what they go with and how they fit in the wardrobe.  

Ciao!  I have my photos to show soon .... at least sooner than another month :)

  12. Love the colour, Sue and you have done a wonderful job on the cardy. I am sure you will get a lot of wear out of it in between seasons. I love a good cardy!! Di.
