Drapy Black Sweater
I was initially drawn to this pattern because of the pockets and they do not disappoint. It took me a bit to figure out the construction directions but once I did they made perfect since. Honestly, if I had read them to begin with instead of just looking at the pictures I would have probably gotten it much faster.
Generally I like this pattern and plan to make it again. The only thing I don't love is that even though I sized up it doesn't really meet in the middle. I don't think its meant to but since I have a larger chest this means the sweater often falls to the outside of the girls. On a side not looking at some of the pictures I think I should start tucking sometimes. I'm realizing that the pants are making my stomach and hips look bigger then they are and lets be honest here I certainly don't want that.
On a stash diet note I used most of a 3 yard piece of fabric for this. I've also made myself a brown top but haven't worn or photographed it just yet.
