We recently started stocking the gorgeous Experimental Space patterns. The Casey Sweater and the Evelyn Blouse. As soon as I saw Andrea's Instagram post about the Casey sweater, I knew I wanted to make it as I love the shape, quirky details and cosy cowl neck.
I was undecided on what fabric to use (so much choice right?) but managed to narrow it down to the Textured Diamonds loop back french terry for the main body and the Scattered Mini Triangles cotton jersey for the cuffs and inner cowl.
In the end it I went with the blue, although the pink combo looks really cute too so might make that one in the future.
There was a couple of tricky details but I usually find it difficult to understand patterns in general so I wouldn't say it's a difficult make.
I took loads of pictures of the process for future reference.
I used my lovely Prym love vario pliers to add some colour snap buttons instead of the fabric covered buttons as suggested in the pattern. I love using them, it makes adding buttons to garments so quick and easy plus makes it practical and fun!
I love how the Pink Coat Club Blue Sewist pin looks on it, such a a great colour combo. The It has pockets would be perfect too to mach the cosy deep pockets.
Check out my home fabric stash! A bit obscene the amount of bolts I have saved over the years... and you don't want to see the rest of it behind those cupboards!
Cookie loves having peek at whats up there :)
Overall i'm really happy with the overall fit and look of my new sweater and I cant't wait to make another one!
Here are a other Casey Sweaters I made since: Fabrics are the Groovy Stripes Loop Back French Terry with the Scattered Bees jersey And also the Dancing flamingos Soft back with the Cinnamon Pink polka dots jersey
