The lovely Alicia over at Swoon Sewing Patterns has done it again! Another beautiful and easy pattern.
But it gets better-it's a WOMENS pattern! I can't describe how much I love sewing for myself.
Presenting Swoon Cardigan!
Size range is S-XXL. Two sleeve options: long and 2/3 (elbow-ish)
Irregular hem line for fun and princess seams for a great fit.
Super easy and fast pattern to sew. She gives sewing options for using a serger OR French seams.
This pattern should definitely take less than 2 hours cut to finish. I'm embarrassed to say that it took me longer because my knit choice is so thin, it kept slipping out from my fingers. THEN I sewed a sleeve 45 degrees off. I took extra care to rip that serged seam.
The instructions are only 1 (ONE) page long. Yep, that easy! She also provides an assembly diagram.
The thing I love most about this pattern is the sleeve length. They are nice and long. I admit, I'm a knuckle dragger, so it's rare for me to find sleeves that are long enough. I was beyond thrilled to find that I did not have to lengthen the sleeves. Remember! If you need to shorten/length sleeves, do so around the elbow on the pattern so that you get the correct sleeve structure! Don't just chop off at the wrist!
