Cardigans have wide hems at outer edges and full length sleeves. View A has angled fronts and front extends forming collar. View B has hood and patch pockets.
I made view B Pattern Sizing:
Xs to Xl. I made small. Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes it did. What do you think? Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions are easy to follow.
Stick with the order of construction. The pockets are sewn at the end of construction.
This makes the pockets easy to place them evenly on the jacket front. And you'll definitely know they are comfortable too!
I love how Kwik Sew also note what each line is like the pocket pattern marks the front, top, bottom side of the piece.
This really makes their patterns easy to work with and piece together easily.
I also love 6mm seams. What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Like:
This is a basic pattern that is easy to make work for you in one afternoon. I'm not kidding.
There are very few pattern pieces to work with. Dislike:
I found the collar/hood didn't sit close to my neck but I have used a very long open-ended zipper so when the cold wind blows, I'll zip the jacket up to keep me cosy and warm. Fabric Used:
A thick fleece fabric.
The furrier side is on the outside of the jacket.
This is not a fashion statement. It's a utility item. Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I've made 2 alterations
I made a roll shoulder adjustment.
I've shortened this jacket but if I need a warmer version, I'll keep it longer to cover my tushy. Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes. You'll read about why this jacket is so handy here.
There are so many ways you can make this jacket look individual and tastful.
I intend to make view A for Mum. Conclusion:
I can use this jacket for any season and any occasion. I can also sew for anyone in the family because it's multi size and easy to put togther.
It's an easy piece to make for winter.
