I truly enjoyed my time off this past week. I was able to complete three sewing projects. The first one was posted here.
The second project was another McCall's sweater knit top, M6796. My first version of this pattern was a year ago. The second version I deemed a success. There were lots of side seam matching due to the design. I cut both front and back pieces as a single layer so that I could get stripes and design patterns to match up.
The final item I made and finished hemming this morning was another McCall's pattern. The fabric used was recently acquired from Fabric Mart. It too is a sweater knit similar in weight to the fabric used with the top above. That fabric was from EOS and was purchased about a year ago.
Here are a few shots of the cardigan with back peplum.
I think this will work with pants, dresses as well as top with skirt.
I have enough of this fabric to make a short sleeved top with turtle neck of which I have a few patterns that fit that design.
I think I am now ready to move on to some other more challenging patterns. It was nice to get immediate gratification from these garments.
