Otium sweater pattern tour + give away

The coming week you'll be seeing a lot of Sofilantjes newest pattern around the blogosphere. The Otium sweater is on tour and  I'm glad I'm yet again part of this (remember the Omni Tempore's I made the men in my life?). So a special welcome to all you Otium tour followers, nice to have you here!

The Otium sweater (affiliate link) is a pattern for girls (12 months-14 years) and women (XS-XXXL) and comes with a lot of options, including high or low back neckline, a bow on the back, pocket on the front and different sleeve lengths.
Because I like my tees basic I chose the low back option, without the bow and a 3/4 sleeve. This is probably the easiest option you can sew and I was done pretty quickly (Oh, how I love a quick sew).

According to the measurements table I could make a size small for the bust but my hips are right in between a small and a medium. So I decided to sew up a small and adjusted the waist to a medium for a nice comfy fit, an easy alteration. The tee is perfect in length and I love the low back.

  2. Mooie sweater! Hele mooie halslijn aan de achterkant, moest je er aan wennen dat hij zo laag is aan de achterkant?
