Wearing Muse

I was finally able to take some photo shots of the completed Jenna Cardi by Muse patterns yesterday.
I wrote a review at  Pattern Review and entered the top in the New to Me Pattern contest.  I think this pattern has some "good bones" and I will make it again.  There are some likes and dislikes that I noted in the review at PR.

You can see from this photo the shortness of the waist length top.  I am somewhat long waisted for a petite/short person.  Next time I am adding an inch.  The pattern description says this is drafted for someone who is 5'10" and I am 5'3".  The waist band is long in length and it still did not make this long enough to go past my waist band on these pants.  I wore the top with these pants as they sit at my natural waist.

Side view

Here is a back view. The waist band seems to be collapsing or I just did not pull this down sufficiently.  It is actually wide and not fitted so I don't think that it is a fit issue.

I do plan to make another one and will try the hip length next.  I do like the short version after I add about an inch more in length.


  1. Very nice Linda. I've been contemplating purchasing that pattern also.

  2. As you say, nice bones to this cardigan. I agree, longer would be a better look - this short length tends to look better on a young pear shape figure. We mature rectangles need the longer length. Merry Xmas.
