‘On fleek’ stripe matching, apparently!

A review of Sew House Seven Toaster Sweaters

Reviewed by Norfolk Daphne on 31st August, 2020

This gorgeous striped loopback jersey was from The Eternal Maker and I LOVE the colours, they’re right up my street! I wanted to make a raglan sweater that played with the stripes, so I opted for a Sew House Seven Toaster as I could get a dramatic contrast with the wide waistband, neckband, and cuffs.

I made a size Small, graded to a Medium at the bust, shortened the bodice by 1 1/2″, took 2″ off the depth of the waistband, and 6″ off the length of the waistband.

I shared some photos in the Facebook Fold Line Group and someone told me my stripe matching is ‘on fleek’. Thankfully I’d watched The Apprentice a couple of years ago (remember the trainers, anyone?!) and know what it means, so I said thank you very much! 😉
