Generally speaking, I buy fabric that I like with little to no idea of what it will eventually become. However every once in a while, I will see a piece of fabric and know instantly what it was meant to be. That is the story with this piece. On a trip to JoAnn's I saw this fabric and instantly knew it would become this cute little peplum cardi.
I've paired my cardi with these coated rock star jeans from Old Navy. The coated variety only come in Black and Wine but they do come in lots of other colors Here and I love the fit.
Pattern Description: MISSES'/MISS PETITE CARDIGANS: Close-fitting cardigans (do not meet at center front) have collar extending into front band, and narrow hem. A and C: shaped hemline, wrong side shows.
Pattern Sizing: Combinations: Y(XSmall-Small-Medium), ZZ(Large-XLarge-XXLarge)
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? I think so
Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions were easy to follow.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? The pattern layout is TIGHT. Did I say the layout is tight? I would advise buying a little more fabric than they suggest. I appreciate the effort at economy but I'd rather not be stressed out worrying that I have enough fabric.
Fabric Used: I used a sweater knit I picked up at JoAnn's
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I sewed as is. No alterations necessary.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I could definitely make this again although I have no current plans.
Conclusion: This is a very versatile piece that can be used to build your wardrobe.
Can I just tell you how much I LOVE these shoes. I'm a sucker for a great oxford and these babies from 9 West do not disappoint. I got these at the beginning of Fall and they have been completely sold out on the 9 West site for months but they are available Here
Here's a closer look at the fabric and you can just see the metallic threads between the dots.
