Pattern Description:
I made the NewCastle Cardigan for my brother.
Pattern Sizing:
I used the size Small
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, it totally looks like the photo on the pattern!
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Well, at some point I had some problems with instructions. They came with pictures, but even with then it wasn't clear and I had to unstitch everything and that's not something that I like. BUT, since they are not many pieces and they are simple, it's easy to just follow your instinct to create the cardigan!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like that the company is selling menswear sewing patterns. This one is really nice because the shape is a bit unique, you don't see it everyday.
Fabric Used:
I used 2 types of knit fabric. The main fabric is dark red and the shoulders and back yoke are grey.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I made some alternations to the sleeves, because the bottom is really big. I added a stripe at the bottom to create some style. Otherwise, I only went to the medium size at the waist.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Even if you might have some problems with the instructions, it's a really great pattern and the result is perfect! It's easy to sew (maybe not for the beginner because of the knit) and I might just sew one for every guy I know!!
If you are looking for a menswear pattern, this one is a must! Don't be scared and go for it, you won't regret it
