Very constructive review, and I love your garment. The colorcombination is great, and Imo the looseness of the style is very becoming if you wear it as a casual topper.

Very nice looking cardigan on you! I did not think of the dropped shoulders (of which I am not a fan). As always, a superb review!

Thank you so much for the kind comments all... Patti, yes - I am thinking that the next one I should shorten the shoulder... :-)

Great cardigan -- so cozy looking! Will you shorten the shoulder seam on the next one? Thanks for such a thorough review and helpful construction photos.

Thank you so much. I need a cardigan! I have everything I need so just need to get tracing.

What a great looking cardigan. You did a super job, especially sewing on that firm thick fabric. Thanks for the great tips in your review and the photos. The coat looks really wonderful on you. Have lots of fun wearing it.

Great looking jacket. Really nice - good to have the info on sizing too. I like this, and am glad to know it runs large. I don't want sleeves to the ground on my short round form! Really nice buttons.

Terri, I love it. The red buttons really make this one look more expensive. Lucky me! I have this pattern.

Excellent review, thanks. I've admired this sweater in the magazine, thanks for pointing out the shoulder issue. Your cardigan looks very nice.

Beautiful job on this jacket. It does look very cozy. I have this issue and am so glad you reviewed this topper. I actually do like dropped shoulders so your review has peaked my interest in making it!

I like it. Although, also not a huge fan of dropped shoulders. And I love your buttons! They really add that extra zing to the garment :-)

This is a very pretty cardigan. I am with you , not a fan of dropped shoulders but I think it looks great on you. The collar, red buttons and patch pockets are great details and you see those things and not the dropped shoulders. The bag your friend made is fantastic, too.

Great cardigan. Looks very chic on you. Thanks for the photos and detailed construction tips.

Really very nice cardi! I can feel your disappointment with the dropped shoulders as I'm not a big fan either (which eliminates half the Twinkle Sews book!), but it really does look very nice on you regardless, and all the fun buttons draw the eye away from the shoulders, too!
