Thank you to those who have been following my Classic garments collection and who have left such nice comments.
Today, I'm going to show you two pieces. The first one is a cardigan which is a modified version of Silhouette Patterns Nina's Top.
The fabric is a poly/rayon knit, is very soft and looks and feels like cashmere.
I made a muslin for Nina's top in a black rayon knit from my stash and although I liked it, for this one I decided to take away some of the fullness at center front by doing this.I cut at the red line (in the photo) and added the front band at this new cutting line.
I made the size 3 (Silhouette Patterns have a different sizing method and have front pieces for B,C, and D cups .)
I used Steam-a-Seam Lite for all hems. I wish I had applied light fusible interfacing to the front band. It could have used it.
I also made a 3/4 sleeved pullover with my own version of a draped neck out of the same material. I've since lowered the neckline as it was a bit too high. I love this top.
I used the pullover and sleeves from Silhouette Patterns the Sweater Set for this one.
I already had the ivory double knit skirt (M5590) and sleeveless top (S3634 )in my wardrobe and I think they go perfectly with my new animal print basic pieces. More pics here and here.
This week, I completed the muslin and worked out the fitting issues for V1264. I'm hoping to finish it this week so I can wear it at least a couple of times while it's still winter.
I do hope you found time to sew this week! More later from
