Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? I haven't used any trim on my cardigan as I don't have anything suitable in the stash, but it does look much the same.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Instructions are clear and precise and easy to follow.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like that this is a basic cardigan with the option to add trims. This is the first time I have made this cardigan and I intend to make it again and add trim.
Fabric Used: French terry, which came from a large fabric outlet on Dandenong Rd Dandenong about 10 - 12 years ago. Outlet is no longer there.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: No alterations but will lengthen it the next time I sew it. (My long upper body)
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes I will be sewing this again and would recommend it to others if you have it as it is OOP.
Conclusion: A good basic Cardigan.
