Cotton cardigan

Have you ever sew something you did not like? Not because of fit, but because it does not fit your style. It happened to me with this cadigan. The pattern is McCall's 6844, the one with many positive reviews on Pattern Review.

So why it did not work for me? Firstly, I cut it too short. I did short waist alteration and removed 2.5 cm, but forgot to add the same amount to the length.
Secondly - wrong fabric choce. I chose thin cotton knit in light grey colour, which would be more suitable for sweatshirt.

No photo on me this time.

It looks more like loungewear. However the pattern itself is ok, and I might sew it sometime, only with different fabric. It will look great in lightweight wool knit.
