The Wrap Up:

Where do I start with this incredible sew? This sew was love from the minute I received the fabric till the minute I finished it and got to wear it.

I am a big fan on oversized at the moment. I feel like it’s a big hug and also helps me feel a little less self conscious about some of my lumps and bumps.

This pattern has two versions. The Bonfire version which is more of an oversized poncho, and the Date night version with is a crew neck sweater with side vents. I was a fan of both versions, but as we are heading into Summer in the Southern Hemisphere, I wanted something that I would be able to wear on the cooler nights but also be able to layer underneath in the colder months. Being oversized means I will be able to wear this year round with no issues.

This was also my first time using Clover & Co. Fabrics waffle base. Safe to say it will not be my last. This is quite a light base to wear, but the square waffles give it such a cosy feel. It has more horizontal stretch than vertical, so wouldn’t suit leggings or any garment that requires 4 way stretch, but pj’s, jumpers, joggers and cardigans are perfect in this base. It is 95% cotton and 5% spandex, so also really breathable, which is important to me. The generous 160cm wide Width of Fabric (WOF) also means you can squeeze a lot out of the meterage. Worth checking out.

So all in all a huge win for me on this pattern and fabric. The Serendipity is on sale until 21st November 2022 for $6USD OR, you can get it for free with the purchase of any other Sonia Estep Designs Pattern. I highly highly recommend the Iris shorts. I’ve written a review of that one HERE!
