For my next project, I decided to go to design #2, the Classic or Modern Short Sleeve Sweater.
and here is version #2. Both fabrics are very lightweight sweater knits in 1 yard cuts that I found at Hancock's flat fold apparel fabric table. I think that I paid around $3.50/yd for each of them, so this is a quick and cheap project! I plan on wearing them either with black or charcoal grey bottoms for work.
Here's a closeup of the raw edge on the striped knit:
and also on the sleeves:
I'm predicting that these edges will curl a little more after they've been washed the first time.
I'm working on putting together a plum/grey/pink wardrobe for fall, so I've got lots more planned to go with these pieces.
Have any of you made anything yet from this issue? If you would like a copy, we still have a few left at SewBaby here. It is a fun one! I can't wait to get some more designs sewn up.
