Toaster sweater 2

The last few weeks have disappeared so quickly.... work has been crazy busy so there hasn't been much sewing time. The birthday season has also started so I have been baking this week-end.


I had cut my Toaster Sweater 2 in January but I never had time to start sewing it but finally this week-end. The sweater is easy to make there are only 4 parts: front, back and the 2 sleeves.


The vent has mitered corners but if you have made any bags where you square the bottom, well it is the same technique.

I really like the look of the sweater and the fabric I have picked for it from Fabric Galore. But I must admit, I find the body of the sweater just a little baggy and I think I didn't sew the sleeves perfectly. Never mind, this is only my second piece of dressmaking and I am still a beginner and after a good press it looks good anyway!
It is wearable and the fabric is lovely. But if I were to make a Toaster again, maybe I would go back to version 1!
Anyway, this is my first finish for February and one OPAM for February as well as one of my Finish Along for Q1.
