With the dark pink Jersey I bought yesterday I made myself, in no time flat, a little bolero / drape cardigan. Influenced heavily by the drape cardigan I did here (and have since worn heaps and heaps of times) I wanted one similiar but didn't want it so long and drapey at the back. In fact, I was never going to be able to make it as I only bought 1 metre of the dark pink jersey... so.. I pulled out the Japanese Pattern Book: Clever and Unique Clothes My Style, which I was supposed to have sent to my sister last Monday (sorry J!) and used view H as a basis. H is made from woven material so I improvised a bit and used the same technique as the drape cardigan to attach a binding piece all around. It kind of worked. With a binding piece on the sleeves as well.
I'm all 'buttoned up' in the photos but obviously I'll be able to button it anywhich way you like!
|Buttoned lower makes it longer at the back! Ta da!|
