Flowery Stella

This is the second stella I've made,  it's such a nice and quick sew! I've added some lines on the shoulders, small effort, great effect! To fit my growing belly (18months pregnant) I've lengthened the bodice, and also the sleeves since I have monkeyarms?

As long as my belly fits in and weather will stay autumnish... I'll love to wear this!

#Stella #FibreMood


This cropped sweater that only just reaches the waist has a round neckline, decorative inserts and batwing sleeves. What makes the Stella sweater such a versatile model is that a different effect can be created depending on which fabric is used.

Fabric advice

You can achieve a different look depending on the type of fabric used. 

We made a version from three different fabrics: a fine knitted fabric with stripes and glitter, a red interlock knit and a gray ribbed jersey. 

The neck, hem and wrist trims are made out of sweatshirt trim. 

Using sweater knit or French terry cloth is also a great option. 

By using a stripe print fabric, you can create visual interest by alternating how the stripes are cut each time. Are you using a solid, but want to avoid ending up with just another boring garment? Why not try sewing some pretty fringes and ribbons onto the sweater?
