Your versions are terrific. Thanks for the photos. Hope mine turns out this good. Glad you inspired the sew along.

katie lynne - I hope the raw edge holds okay. It probably depends on the fabric. This fabric, I think, may develop some slight fuzziness at the raw edges after a few washings... that's just my guess. We'll see!

I wouldn't have looked at the pattern twice, but your version made me want one, too! Unfortunately it seems it's not available over here, so I will have to live without it. Anyhow - LOVE your version. It's so versatile and it suits you perfectly!

This garment is absolutely fabulous on you! Donna and Vera should see you. I appreciate all the helpful links and extra pictures. Gotta question: I know hemming isn't needed, but how does the 'raw' edge wear? Do you think it will withstand all the rubbing which will certainly happen since there will be a lot of tying/untying? Super review!

Your links are wonderful! You look so smart in all variations. I'm a believer and will be buying this pattern when Simplicity goes on sale next week-end. The jacket and top would be perfect theater wear, especially with a matching skirt (monochromatic works well for me).

I love your version. And thanks for the video link, amazing. I especially love the versions using a bangle bracelet. Next Simplicity sale and this one's coming on home.

Christina, I love it! Your version inspired me to make my own cozy. I need to find the perfect fabric now.

Thanks for this review, yours looks fab on you. I have a RTW cardigan like this & would love to make one in a different colour. This would be just right.

I've made this but haven't reviewed it yet. I used the same fabric (in a different color), and I love mine, too. I love how yours looks!
