When I saw the Louise sweater from Misusu I fell in love right away and wanted to test the pattern, but unfortunately I did not have time at that moment. So I had to wait until it was released. Then I bought it right away. But this is how it always goes with new patterns with me. I plan to sew them right away, but then either a new pattern is released that I again buy or a pattern test gets in the way and the pattern moves down the list. It took me a couple of months before I sewed the Louise sweater.Because I love the pattern so much I decided to sew one for our youngest and one for our eldest. Twinning with the girls!
I really like the Louise sweater, it is such a different pattern than anything I have seen so far. I love the high-low hem, the fact that you can combine different types of fabric (jersey with woven), the kangaroo pocket in the front, and the pleat that makes the back look great. I really feel that the patterns by Misusu are unique. I have a couple more patterns from Misusu that are on my list to sew. Let's see how quickly I will sew them up. The only disadvantage of these patterns is that they do not fit the requirements of our eldest daughter. It is not a dress that can twirl, so let's see if I can convince her.I sewed both sweaters with sweat fabric, so they can wear it during winter. Most of the fabric I had in my own stash, although just a tiny piece, the cuffs and lining of the pocket of the sweater for our eldest daughter came from the exchange pile during our sewing weekend. Since I sewed the sweaters during our weekend I went through the pile to find fabric that matched my other fabric.
Fabric: all fabric came from my stash, so a perfect way to decrease my stash!
