Oversize Sweater

Hello.. I made a new sweater based on Burda Easy A/W 2013 pattern 6B :) This sweater is one of the garments that I plan for MAGAM November challenge, the plan was posted here in  my facebook page . The weather is still hot but I think it will be going down soon, so once again I am wearing it just to take pictures :) I love how the sweater turned out, it is very cosy, soft and warm at the same time. Besides that, I love the colours. Grey and black matched well with each other. What do you think? Materials: I used 2 yards of ponte de roma knit in grey colour and cotton ribbed knit for the bands. Three black buttons, two snap fasteners, fusible interfacing and thread. Pattern: Burda Easy Autumn Winter 2013, sweater 6 B size 34/36. The magazine didn't come with printed pattern, so I have to draft it following the instruction. It was an easy drafting, I am done in less than 30 minutes. Sewing process: After I drafted the pattern, I transferred to the fabric an
