I cut a straight size XS in variation 1. I used a grey Merino for the bottom half and a bright purple for the top half. Both picked up in the Fabric Store sale. The purple has a slightly softer drape and is a bit stretchier.
I followed the instructions to a tee (except for using my overlocker instead of the sewing machine) and they were perfection. This is a ridiculously simple make, with so much potential for hacking, style and colour variations.
Really not much more to say about this one. I love how it turned out and I can see myself making a hole heaps of these jumpers. I'm really glad I made the straight XS. The S would have just been to roomy. My only complaint is that the purple stretches out of shape really quickly so I probably should have reinforced the shoulders with some clear elastic of stabilzer. I have a heap of the purple left so I'll be sure to remember this when I next use it. I cut another Ensis and Coppelia this arvo in the other variations and I cant wait to get a chance to sew them up.
