What was your inspiration? I love that this shrug can go casual or dressed up. I wanted the back to cover my bum, so I lengthened the pattern by 6 1/2 ". I'm only 5" 2" so I wasn't sure if this would overpower me but because the jersey is sheer and drapey, it works. I used my serger on the first shrug but on this one, it seemed faster and easier to simply use my sewing machine with the walking foot attached.
