I received this pattern as the freebie-of-the-month and must admit it didn't interest me much...until I saw yours. Charming!

I too received this as the free pattern of the month. I liked it but now seeing yours I LOVE IT! Your ruffles look much wider than on the pattern drawing even though you cut them down and yours look so much more appealing.

Amazing coincidence! I have just finished making this cardigan in the same colour but, with short sleeves for summer! I have also made a long sleeve version too in grey wool modal. I didn't have any trouble with my frill widths. My only thoughts might be the fabric type used, my fabrics were quite drapey. I'll have to summon the courage to do my first review so I can show you!

Just beautiful. You've convinced me to take the plunge and make this my first Style Arc purchase. Do you hem all those ruffle edges or are they left raw?

CissieW said...
the ruffle edges are raw. I hemmed the bottom with my coverstitch machine.

Thanks - I'm going to give it a whirl.

Like Karla, I got this free with my pattern purchase last month and felt ho-hum about it...but seeing it made up has convinced me to make one too. Pretty!

Very cute, Cissie! You're right to use the ruffler next time - ruffles in a jiffy!

That is gorgeous. It reminds me of a very expensive anthropologie cardigan from a couple of years ago.

I got this as a freebie with my first-ever StyleArc order - love to hear that the sleeves didn't need any easing! Thanks for the helpful review. Yours is gorgeous; this may be my first make of the new year!
