That was enough to put me off the idea of making it ))) I still love it though, but even more so I love my husband and his wonderful blunt ways of making sure I don't look laughable to the world. And if it sounds bad, believe me - he is mostly right about these things. (Don't worry I get him back for it!)
Then another thing- I ordered this black and silver fabric called Silver Shine from www.myfabrics.co.uk , a great site with fantastic bargains and excellent customer servises. The fabrics are always very good quality, fast delivery and so much information available about the purchased fabric, its composition, care advice, etc. I also bought a few luxury lining fabrics there (photos on the right). My white Winter Mood Cardigan's fabric was also purchased there. My favourite part on the website is that you can zoom the fabric, just hovering over it with cursor and really see what you are getting. Only that I didn't look properly and didn't read properly. I just decided it looked like a wool blend thick-ish fabric. Why? See the small images of sample garments on the bottom? Do not be fooled- they are generic models with this fabric intelligently superimposed, so you kinda have a chance to see its uses. Only it forgets that there are such attributes as stiffness and flowey-ness (if that is even a word), so some fabrics will never look like that in those garments in reality. That is what I failed to understand- and ended up with this very soft polyamide see through fabric with a knitted look. When I went back to the site- I realised- that what I saw on the fabrics photo, so i only have myself to blame for it!

And even though I already set my 12 in 2012 garments to sew, I am thinking.... why not make two of the same goal points. I am talking about a summer cardigan. I think this fabric is perfect for something very simple like this:
