Another M6996

I completed this sweater knit jacket last weekend.  Just getting around to posting about it.

This is my second version of this pattern.  I previously made this in 2014.  That one was the short version-View A.  That fabric was a sweater knit from Fabric Mart.

This one is View B, the longer version.  The fabric is from Vogue Fabrics, in muted (dull) green color.
I wore it with a long sleeve sweater underneath with black stretch woven fabric-Talbot's side zip pants.  Scarf is from Versona.

I ended up taking 3/8 seam allowances instead of the called for 5/8.  This knit did not have the stretch that my other knit fabric had.

Here is the back view:
There is a little pulling the sleeve, they do run smallish.  I also think this is due from the heavier sweater that I wore under it.  The peplum covers my butt.

This is my semi side view:

I wore this to work on Monday and it passed the wearabilty factor!  I am not sure that I will make another one any time soon; though I may try the other style included with the pattern at a later time.  I have several other garments I want to sew next.

My next garment will be jeans.  This will be a challenge for me as I have limited experience with pants.  I just prefer to sew other things.  My first attempt will be the Jalie pull on jeans.  I purchased some jean fabric at JoAnn's for my test garment.

  1. Lovely cardigans Linda and will look great with the Jalie jeans. I made Eleonore recently and they are a lovely style and cut, as well as being very comfortable to wear.

  2. I agree that both are nice pieces. One can't have too many cardigans.

  3. So pretty, Linda. I love this pattern, the back skirt is different and kicks it up a notch. Looks great on you.
