Thoughts: I like it.  It feels slightly tight in the arms.  I would like a little more room in the arms because I can’t wear any long sleeve shirts under this.  I feel the pockets are in an odd spot, not very functional because of where they sit height-wise.  It doesn’t close shut over my bust or hips, but I’m not sure it is meant to come that far in anyway. It is a nice cardigan.  I like the fabric. I like the length.  It was a fast, easy sew.  It is just ok. I’m not sure if I would make another.

Thoughts: I love this drop pocket design, plus there are double front pieces so they act as a full facing.  There aren’t many seams visible on this cardigan – just the sides and sleeves.  I wear my other two a ton and have gained some weight so they are a bit small on me. I miss wearing them because I seriously reached for them and wore them almost every time I left the house.  This one turned out a little big on me but I don’t care. It is soft and wonderful and I will wear it a ton too! I need to remake a gray one now.  The gray one I made previously was a thin sweater knit and absolutely perfect in every way.  I always want one of these drop pocket cardigans in my wardrobe. I love them!
