The Sincerely Sawyer Sweater is so cute! And if you are not a fan of the cold shoulder cut-out, it's really simple to make one without it. I'll be sure to post one soon.
I made this Sincerely Sawyer Sweater with a gorgeous blue & white striped sweater knit from a Darcy pick box! It's so soft and just feels amazing!
You can use a knit or woven for the ties on the Sincerely Sawyer Sweater. I found the ties were perfect to use those scraps of gorgeous woven that I can't bear to part with. This is a piece I picked up from Steve at Super Textiles. It was from the personal collection of Francis Malik. I have no idea if this was used in one of her collections or not - but it's a gorgeous floral print and Steve only had a piece about 24 " by 18". It was too gorgeous for me to pass up, but I had no idea what I'd ever use it for. I'm so glad it has a great spot in my wardrobe now.
I also made a Sincerely Sawyer Sweater with an Aztec like print sweater know that I can't recall where it came from. I used the same fabric for the ties on this one.
An important thing to note on wearing this top is that it is intended for the tie to have about 1.5 - 2" of strap on each side of the knot. This will keep the knot squarely on top of your shoulder covering your bra strap. If you tie it too tightly, leaving no space between the knot and the neckband piece, it will slide down your shoulder.
