A viewer from my Craftsy.com class shared this Before & After photo pair of a draped-front cardigan she sewed up just to test the fit of the pattern. What she discovered applies just as much to a purchased cardigan as it does to the one she made.
What a dramatic change! In the first pic your eyes go directly to the bottom point of the draped lapel, don’t they – smack dab in the middle of her tummy? But in the second one they go directly up to her face!
Instead of a throw-away test garment, she has a fun new wardrobe addition to her casual wardrobe. Can I just say – LOOKING GOOD! (Pun utterly intended). What wardrobe dud could you revive with a little shoulder enhancement? I’d love to see your photos too.
