|Pattern Description: Knit wardrobe including cardigan, long sleeve top, short sleeve top, skirt & pants. I sewed View A- the cardigan. |
Pattern Sizing: 10-22
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked that it was a very easy pattern. I disliked the way the band laid around my neck and the front of the cardigan (prior to modification). It is cut as just a rectange of fabric, so it stands up and away from the body instead of being contoured to the front/back pattern pieces.
Fabric Used: Polar Fleece
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
1) On all three versions, I added clear elastic to the band, so that it would contour and fit around my body/neck.
2) I removed 1" from both the front and the back pattern pieces, and 4" from the length, as the smallest size was a Misses' 10 which was much too large for me.
3) I lined the sleeves, to that it would be easier to get on and off.
4) On the Navy Blue version, I added Patch Pockets
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I have already sewn three versions and may do more. Would recommend it as a quick and easy cardi.
Navy Version Close-up Patch pockets & four rows of top stitching
Turquoise Version Topstitched Band, Sleeves & Hem with my Coverstitch machine
Print Version As the print is so busy, I did not top stitch or add any additional detail.
I made the sash belt and thread carriers with all three versions, although I doubt that I'll ever wear any of them belted, so will probably remove the thread carriers.
I've drawn a contoured band pattern piece, but have not made a version using it yet.
