I was really lucky and got my hands on a second-hand Bernette 334D overlocker - yay!!!  It was a heck of a lot cheaper than buying a new one and it does everything I need.  I had great fun getting to know it and getting acquainted with the differential feed.  I'm in love  Smiley

So the first thing I made on it was this wrap cardigan for my lovely mum.  I bought the fabric with her in mind and when I saw Simplicity pattern 2603 it was just what I had in mind.



My terrific mum modelling for me  Grin


Back neck...


Sleeve...


I just overlocked all the edges.  It went together very easily.  And the pattern, well, the usual story with sizing - Mum was a medium according to the pattern, so I cut the small  Smiley  I had to make quite a few adjustments - Mum has a very small frame so I had to reduce the shoulder width from 10cm to 8cm, I shortened the body and sleeves considerably, and widened the upper sleeve and the armhole.  I made all those changes to the paper pattern and it produced a perfect fit - I was so chuffed.

Comments and criticism very welcome  Smiley

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

Nope, definitely not the 'westside' sign, though I don't know what that is  Smiley

Thanks soooo much for all the lovely comments (Mum will enjoy reading them too!)
