The lacey sweater I didn't crochet

For once, something lacey I’m wearing isn’t store bought or crocheted by me!

I posted about the fabric over a year ago here → Fabric question

Including the pattern I was considering → The Easy Long Cardigan, A New Staple In Your Wardrobe | So Sew Easy

the fabric has been sitting in my stash since my last trip to Japan, Pre-Covid. I bought at a little shop that did 100yen per meter :wink:

It was a an easy make as I used the fabric’s scalloped edges for the hems instead of trying to sew it all.

Here is my workshop floor wearing it:

ETA - thanks to all the folks who consulted on the fabric :slight_smile:


It’s so pretty and I bet a really versatile wardrobe piece!

So pretty!

Also, I’m going to be going to Japan in a couple of months, if you have any must-visit crafty places to go I’d love to hear them!

Looks great with your new earrings as well!

Beautiful! I’d be afraid to cut into that fabric. It looks finnicky to work with, but you nailed it!


Looks great! I noticed your new earrings as well!
