But, Abi has worn this sweater a lot and used it as an extra layer in the winter and a light jacket during the warmer months whenever needed.
This Spring, I thought I would make another one but with slight changes.
I cut the back on the fold and straightened it out so that it does not have the same curve it is designed to have. Then, I cut the front pieces but because the back was less wide, they didn't fit exactly on the shoulders and I accommodated that with little reverse box pleats at the shoulder.
I also shortened the sleeves to a 3/4 length.
And left off the band that was supposed to go around the front and along the bottom. The knit I used was double sided; one with polka dots and the other with stripes, so I played with flipping the fabric and the inside looks cool as it is worn loose.
I decided to finish the edges with simply serging the bottom and the neckline. My thread was very neutral and blended well.
This version of the slouch sweater is not very fancy and has very simple finishes. But Abi likes it for another layer and was a super quick sew.
