Victoria Secret Cardigan Inspiration
Pattern Description: Fitted, unlined jacket (does not meet at center front) has front extending into collar, wrong side shows, side pockets, stitched hem on collar/sleeves, and raw-edge finish on hem. B: shown overlapped. Semi-fitted, straight-legged pants have waistband, elasticized tie ends and stitched hems.
Pattern Sizing: I made the shorter version in a Medium
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Somewhat
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like all of the asymmetrical sweaters I’ve been seeing and thought to make one myself.
Fabric Used: Sweater knit bought on clearance last summer (Hancock’s I think)
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I didn’t want the folded over collar so I shortened that piece by about 5 inches. I eyeballed it. I also serged all of the seams, stabilized the neckline and waistline seam with Lightweight clear elastic.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I am actually thinking about sewing the longer version soon.
Conclusion: I could wear this everyday!!! I want one in every color.
