|Pattern Description: |
I made the long sleeve, long panel variation
I made a medium.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, but there was more bulk behind my neck.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
yes, straight forward
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love the versatility of the cardi-warp and this version has long panels that can be tired in many different ways.
I did not like the elastic behind the neck I though that the whole part could be reduced because when I tie it across the front there is a lot of fabric that needs to be dealt with.
I made this project from the remnants of an infinity dress so it didn't have enough fabric to make the long panels continuous. So they are in two pieces. I may remove the lower portion as it is too long when not tied.
When it is tied in the back, there is an uncomfortable knot when you are sitting. Also, this fabric is slippery so when tied it tends to ride up and I have to reposition it often.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I might make the camisole for myself. The card-wrap would be a good gift because the sizing doesn't have to be perfect.
Great item to sew and to have.
Tied behind neck
Tied at side
draped over shoulder
Tied in back
Rolled and pinned
