Fabric:Rayon Jersey  [See other projects in this fabric]
Pattern Description: From StyleArc: "Great jersey cardi to have for all occasions, wear it over your cami or dress, knot it at the front or leave it casually hanging down casually. Optional 2 sleeve lengths."

Pattern Sizing: 2-30

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? For the most part. I used a heavier knit so it didn't tie the same.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Minimal but good.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Very quick to make up. No buttons, hooks, snaps or zippers!

Fabric Used: Double sided (polka dot/stripe) rayon jersey from JoAnn's

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I probably won't make it again for me as it's not the most flattering on my body. However, if you like loose fitting cardis, it's super easy and quick to make.

Conclusion: I have worn it several times and enjoyed it when I was wearing it. I'm glad I made it. Although I love the double sided knit, I wish I had used a lighter weight jersey.

Like your cardi. Even though you're not 100% satisfied I think it looks wonderful.
