this looks very nice on you, I made this pattern too and did not like the facings, next time I was going to bind them with the same fabric all around the front edge and back neck. The facing was bulky. My fit was good I better stop here before I do a review, I never got around to posting it, thanks for the review

Thanks for the heads up on the facing. I find they are hit and miss, and appreciate others input on it. I've had this pattern forever, but never got around to making it. I like the more formal look to it, and it may be nice as an office cardi. Thanks for the great review!

The lines on this are really nice. It would easy to size it up without tracing though. Since the shoulders fit already, you just need to add some more width to the CF and CB if there is one (not side seams though b/c that would affect the sleeves)

I love your new top! It does have a formal look to it, but in a good way. Did you get your hair cut? It looks very nice :)

I like the look of the cardigan, it can be dressy or casual depending on what else you are wearing. White is always a perfect choice!

Another wanna sew pattern for me. Love your insights into the pattern. White on white is okay. But do not do black on black. OMG.

I've made this twinset and actually like that yours look more like suit jacket than cardi... it looks great on you.

Your cardi looks very nice on you, and I think leaving it un-embellished was a good call.
