After!

I am very pleased with my new jacket now I have fiddled with it a bit. The sleeves were still way too long this morning and I turned them back but then the seams on the insode of the Jacket were showing. I know! I’ll cut them off, turn them inside out and re-attach them and then turn them back…It worked fine and it fits a treat…the fabric is lovely and warm and soft. Result! (I have also worked out that my calculation for the number of rows for the sleeve were way out, don’t know what I was thinking of really, I’m sort of glad it worked out like that though)

    this is the second one Marianne, the first one I made would fit someone about a UK petite size 8, don’t know what your equivalent is…this cardigan fits me and I am not a UK size 8! ;^)
