Silhouette Sweater Pattern # 195

I made this Silhouette Sweater, pattern # 195,  with a knit I bought from my local  Fabricville.
It is a very light knit but it did sew up nicely.

Changes I made to pattern:

**  added 2" length to front & back
** added 1" length to the sleeve.

The next sweater I make I will also need to do  a sway back adjustment. 

I wanted to be able to wear this test garment so I made pleats to take in the fullness in the back and I actually like the look of this detail..

Overall I like how this sweater fits.
It is a quick and simple garment to make.
With minor adjustments to the pattern it will be a great TNT.

I like the fabric! I've got a couple of pieces of sweater knit, and I'm trying to decide what to do with them. Today I'm wearing a dress made from a sweater knit, and I just love how warm it is!

Very pretty Ann.I've never seen this at Fabricville. I just ordered my first Silhouette pattern along with a couple of videos. Do you watch the webcasts? I just love them. The new one is about drafting jeans. I haven't watched it yet.
Good luck working at Sewing World!
