Perfect Winter Afternoon Sew

A review of Nina Lee Southbank Sweater and Sweater Dress

Reviewed by Eversewoften on 10th November, 2019

When the first heavy frost of the winter came yesterday morning, I knew it was time to finally make the very popular Southbank Sweater Dress.  I used a cable textured charcoal black jersey.

I made the standard size 16 with no adjustments. The construction is very simple and the whole dress took 3.5 hours from cutting out to completion. I like the depth of the cuffs and despite my height, I didn’t lengthen the bodice as that would detract from the overgrown sweater vibe and ,besides I have nice legs!!

I’d  love to make another one, perhaps a textured muted red and the only changes I would make would be to omit the pockets as these look slightly clumsy.

Today I felt cosy and warm as we walked around York’s Bar Walls despite the chill.
