Oh, what a Happy Day!
Misusu has just released its first women’s pattern and it couldn’t be a better one.
Elles just made my Misusu dreams come true with the Dia Ladies Sweater!
I’ve always admired the Dia, but as it was for little kids only I never got a chance to make one. Needless to say, I was ecstatic to be able to join the test team!
There are so many reasons why I love this pattern so much
- It super COOL;
- Fantastic fit, it’s roomy and comfortable without looking frumpy;
- It’s so amazingly clever! (Hats off to you, Miss Elles Lanfer <3) ;
- It has soooo many options, and they are all great.
How cool is this diamond? 😀
As I mentioned, the pattern has multiple options:
- Diamond or basic front;
- 4 different lengths: a straight & high low sweater and straight & high low tunic length;
- 3 sleeve lengths: long, 3/4 and short.
If you’re looking at all those seams and feeling a bit intimidated, don’t. The instructions are great and it’s not as complicated as it looks. It’s actually super fun to make!
My first Dia was inspired by the first Dia I saw, so I used the same fabric and it’s LOVE!
This is the High Low Sweater with long sleeves, size FF graded to II at the hips.
Fabric comes from Stof-inc.com, but it was purchased a looong time ago and not available anymore 🙁
For my second Dia, I choose the same options but with the basic front instead of the diamond.
This is one of my favorite sweaters to date. I’ve worn it so much already that people around me might be wondering if I don’t have any other clothes. lol
The fabric comes from Stoffen Spektakel (I can’t remember which vendor though…sorry!).
Love the high low option!
The diagonal side seam makes the sweater so flattering and the overall construction of it is so different that even when made all in one color, it’s still special.
And bonus points for perfect bum coverage! 😀 It’s perfect for pairing with leggings.
Cozy and stylish sweater and leggings, pretty perfect combination in my book.
Diamond or Basic front, sweater or tunic, high low or straigh… you can’t go wrong with the Dia.
Kudos to Elles for starting Misusu’s Ladies line with a BANG!
