It`s probably silly to call this week`s garment a muslin but really, I`ve had this lightweight poly/ lycra bought at C&;M Textiles in Ottawa for at least three years and it was time for it to go. I want to make a nice warm cardigan out of a beautiful sweater knit I just bought at Fabricville using M6996 but had to try it out first before I committed.
I made View B and I love the length .
I actually really like the results and the way it hangs. I don't love the neckline and may modify that by adding a facing.
With this stripe fabric the back of View B works
but for my sweater knit version I may use the back of View A with the front of B.
I also made a top to wear with the cardi V 8856 now OOP but available in the BMV website.
. I didn't have enough of the stripes so I used black and red poly lycra for contrast . I've made this one before and love the fit but I reduced the length by 1.5" as the other versions are too long for me. I also made the sleeves 3/4 length and made them tighter at the cuff.
A really good pattern this one.
Two of our grandchildren are coming to spend the night so I have to run.
Happy sewing from
