I didn’t notice this pattern (BurdaStyle 09/2018 #108) when the magazine came out – essentially it is a sweatshirt with a little bit of pleating in the sleeves. Boxy and even slightly utilitarian.
I do however love Sweet Shard’s version in brilliantly hued lace and wondered if the silvery grey lace I had would work. A generous gift from lovely JH xx.
This grey lace isn’t as sheer as Sharadha’s but works just fine I think, though could do with more softness and drape. The sleeve pleats are kinda cute, even if you don’t really see them much, and I like the volume and shape they lend to the lower sleeve.
JJ doesn’t like the top at all – too boxy and square, he thinks, but it will go into regular rotation anyway, weather permitting. The lace is pretty and the colour is one of my favourites.
I have a black sweatshirting version ready to go tomorrow. It is completely different to the lace, very stretchy and drapey, so will be an interesting comparison when done.
I was going to also post a pair of black pants I finished today but the day was ending and it was getting cold. Couldn’t get a decent picture in the fading light.
