This review is for the cardigan
this is a straight size 12
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
yes, besides the obvious alterations
Were the instructions easy to follow?
I didn't use them
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
It requires more shaping or less ease for a stretch fabric.
This argyle fabric was gifted to me and I don't know the details
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I added two back darts because it has no shape. I'm happy with this change. I didn't use the button placket instead I attached pleated grosgrain ribbon on the edge and then used black grosgrain to form the placket and around the neck.
This would have been a very quick project but I wanted to pay special attention to pattern matching. This is the side seam.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I don't think I'll make another cardigan but I do have plans for the skirt and unlined jacket.
