The second piece for my mini-wardrobe is the Ottobre Pearl Cardigan 02-2012-9.
For those of you with good memories and sharp eyes , this is made in the same fabric as my Tessuti Fave top. So it is a fine pin-stripe jersey.
I have not seen this pattern reviewed yet and am a little surprised as cardigans are a popular make.
The neckline is quite wide... wider than I expected and to begin with I wasn't sure I liked it but after wearing it for a day I do. It is a summer cardigan and worked well in the office air conditioning. The wide neckline on the back piece is stabilised/finished with grosgrain ribbon and this was probably the most difficult part to sew. I hand basted it first to achieve a tidy finish.
You can see how wide it is from the back.
This is a real quick make and the most painful part was the tracing.
I really like this cardigan and can see me using it a lot this summer. Review is here.
I have been distracted from my sewing plan to make a second buttondown blouse and hope to show some photos soon.
We have also been on a family camping trip recently and for my OS readers I leave you with a picture my DH took of one of the many kangaroos that we saw there.
