I’d never sewn with a sweater knit before but when I spotted this gorgeous, lightweight, italian wool sweater-knit at Mood Fabrics I decided it was time to give it a try.

V1315

During a Vogue pattern sale, I picked up this Rebecca Taylor pattern (V1315) (despite it’s awkward photo).

It was those amazing droopy pockets that got me.  I cut size 8 based on my measurements, but I wished I would have added more length in the bodice. Since I don’t sew for myself very often, I forget that I am long-waisted.  To see more pics of the finished product and the amazing neck detail, head over to the Mood Sewing Network blog.

Wow, what potential this pattern has. I would have never known from the picture. Lesson learned … always look at the illustration. I love your version and the fabric. Bravo!
