Here it is, my SILVER SHINE CARDIGAN
The pattern is very good, easy to sew and fit perfectly. The smallest size given in the issue is 36, but i reduced it to 34 and reduced the length by about 10" (25cm). Thankfully, I AM short! Here is an original drawing:
Sewing the fabric though was tricky- it is kinda a net texture, so it gets tangled in everything, including the insides of my overlocker, which resulted is both of the top needles being broken during testing, so I went to my sewing machine and did all the work there.
I used wide zig-zag stitch to finish all the edges on the allowances. the hems are just folded in and stitched over. The good thing about the fabric is that you cannot see the seam at all. The bad thing about the fabric is that you can't see the seam AT ALL! So if you need to rip it- you are in a VERY BIG TROUBLE! So Everything had to be right from the first go. In hindsight , I am very pleased that I those this easy pattern for this fabric- anything with more details would be very difficult, if not disastrous!
Overall- not bad for a 3 hours work, including lunch break!
