I have a few unfinished projects on my sewing table at the moment, including some secret sewing for an exciting collaboration with the Minerva Crafts Blog that I can’t tell you about just yet, but aside from all of that I did manage to whip up a cosy little top this week.
This is the Toaster Sweater 2 by Sew House 7 Patterns. It’s the January pattern for #projectsewmystyle, a year long sew-along resulting in a 12 piece capsule wardrobe.
I’m going to be dipping in and out the project rather than making all 12 garments, partly due to other commitments but also because a lot of the patterns just really are not my thing at all.
I can’t say that the Toaster Sweater 2 is my usual style to be honest, but I really love it. I made this out of a navy blue sweatshirt fabric and it’s warm and cosy and perfect for lounging in at home on a chilly night. It’s not something I’d wear out of the house though. Nothing wrong with it, just not me at all.
Making it was really straightforward… I am not a massive fan of a high/low hemline so I lengthened the front of the sweater so that it’s the same length as the back. Other than that, I cut a size M and didn’t make any other changes to the pattern.
It fits me really well but if I were to ever make it again I think I would take a large wedge of fabric out of the back and make it all a bit more streamlined.
Not much more I can say about this really. It keeps me warm, it looks cute, it was easy to make. The end.
