Burda Oversized Sweater

I have very mixed feelings about this make. The over sized fashion seems to be on trend and has been dominating my IG feed for over a year now. I was never a huge fan, some things I like, other things not at all. I think it can look beautiful and people can pull it off well. I am not one of those people. I came to believe that it helps to have broader shoulders and and narrow hips to really look good. I don't have either. I am tall, but my shoulders are narrow and I am more of a pear shape. So what possessed me to make a decidedly oversized sweater? I think mostly curiosity.

The Ila Dress

Last summer on my trip to Ukraine I came across a super cool fabric store. I wasn't looking to purchase any fabric while I was there. Of course I visited every fabric store I knew about, but most of them carried super fancy Italian goodness that was out of my price range. I did drool over it but had enough sense in me not to part with my money. Most Ukrainians who sew make garments. Quilting is not very known or popular. The typical quilting cotton so abundant here is called American cotton there and is not widely available. But there is all sorts of garment fabric to choose from.
