I needed a simple, short, cardigan-like piece that would look good over my loose tops and even my retro style dresses but since I also wanted some definition to look slimmer I couldn't just opt for a cropped knit cardigan and needed something with denser fabrics and seams to give me structure.
I altered the original pattern so that the hem would hit my waist and the shoulders would be narrower and I shortened the sleeves to 3/4 length because the weather's always hot where I live and I find this length more stylish anyway :) Oh and I kept the officer collar even though I'm planning on making my next one without a collar at all to give it a slight Chanel flavour.
First I used some stretch navy cotton:
Then I made one out of this excellent wax fabric:
I have another sober one out of grey denim:
And finally I'm making one with this incredible Bollywood fabric:
Have a nice weekend everyone, see you!
