What was your inspiration?
I wanted to create a simple garment that would demonstrate some of the things you need to know to make garments, like shaping, blocking, seaming, etc.
What are you most proud of?
I love how classic this cardigan is--it can be for either gender, and will always look fresh and timeless. Plus, it's so open to embellishing it with a personal touch.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Give it a shot! Making garments is a lot of fun!
