Styling the Finlayson Sweater for Spring

Last week when I shared some of the submissions to our Finlayson Sweater Photo Contest I didn’t share Nancy’s beautiful photos of her husband modelling his sweater because I didn’t yet have the right format of photo to share.  These photos are too great not to share so, now that I have the photos, I decided they are well worth an extra blog post!

Nancy’s husband paired his Finlayson Sweater (Variation 1 but with an added kangaroo pocket from Variation 2) with a leather jacket and tan trousers for a perfect spring outfit.

I think these photos show how versatile the Finlayson can be because you can see it here sewn up in a cozy and casual sweatshirt fleece…yet look how put together and polished it looks when dressed up a bit with the right jacket!

Thanks, ever so much for sharing your photos, Nancy (and for re-sending them to me in a different format!), and thanks to your husband for making such a dashing model!

You can see more of Nancy’s very wearable, practical and stylish sewing projects on her instagram account (@notfancynancy) or on her blog.  I particularly enjoyed her Instagram post about the collar she replaced on her husband’s much-loved field jacket as a birthday present.  She gave the jacket a fresh new lease on life!
