In the depths of winter, I sewed a shrug… but really it’s the perfect spring layer.
I said ‘loosely’ as I fudged the dimensions a little in an attempt to match the pattern repeat (which you might notice in the photo below, I clearly failed at!) and left off the arm bands. For the sleeves openings, I folded over the seam allowances and stitched them in place.
I used satin bias binding to finish all the raw edges and hem the garment. Neat innards give me a ridiculous amounts of joy.
A simple design, some statement fabric (it reminds me of pixels!) and I have the perfect a layering piece for our current changeable spring weather.
