Here’s my Empire Waist Cardigan. The fact that I don’t even want to show you a shot of it head-on is telling.
(My kids took these shots, by the way.)
My 41-year-old, post-two-kids belly is too exposed. This sweater has no closure mechanism. It’s just not a great look on me. I am SO disappointed. I spent weeks on this cardigan — I tried it on as I went and the fit is perfect. It’s just not flattering. Boo hoo. Excuse me while I wallow for a bit. The good news is the sweater for which I just ordered yarn is a pullover (and one I haven’t mentioned here yet). I think it’ll be flattering. I’ve also newly discovered that vests are flattering so I see more of those in my future. Stay tuned while my queue gets re-evaluated. Also, stay tuned for a post on my second completed quilt.
