This is the cardigan from the Kwik Sew 2948 twinset. There were comments on some of the Pattern Reviews about this sweater set being frumpy and only to be worn by women of a certain age. Well, I'm pretty sure I qualify for the age bracket but I certainly don't see how something as basic as a wardrobe-building sweater set could be considered "frumpy". Please feel free to clue me in if I am out of touch with what's "in"!
I finally found this out-of-print Kwik Sew on EBay, advertised as new and unopened. Sadly, it only contained the cardigan, not the shell, and the seller hastened to return my money. No worries on that, though, because I love any opportunity to use my favorite Vogue 1141 and it paired perfectly with the cardigan:
I used a yummy milk chocolate knit called "Opening Ceremony" from High Fashion and found some adorable wooden buttons:
I stitched with satin embroidery thread over topstitching thread to make corded buttonholes:
I love my new sweater set. Go ahead...call me frumpy. I'll wear it proudly!
