I made two sweaters based on Burda Easy A/W 2013 - pattern no 6 C size 34/36. These projects belong to MAGAM March Challenge with theme "Moreish Makeover March". I was trying my best to finish them by the end of last month but I couldn't.
These sweaters are my second and third versions, you can check my first version for more detail including my work process.
For the fabrics, I used medium weight knit cotton in dark blue with small flowers and pink with small white dots. I bought 3 yards and I only need 1.75 yards for each sweater, so I still have left over fabric enough to make summer top :)
The sewing process was easy but somehow it took so long for me to finish. I started work with the blue sweater and decided to change the original hi-low hem with a normal hem and used black ribbing for the bands. The rest of the sweater is like the original pattern :)
For the pink sweater, I added decorative pieces in the front and back. I did that by cut the fabric in the triangle shapes with 1 cm seam allowance in all edges. And I just put one piece on top of the other (bottom piece) and sew it.
Also, I omitted the side buttons at the shoulder and finished the neck band by fold the fabric 1 cm inside and sew around with twin needle.
For the sleeves and hem bands, I used the wrong side of same fabric and I did the hi-low hem as the original pattern.
Happy Sewing and hope you have a great day.
