Pattern ~ Burda 8869 (out-of-print)
Fabric ~ wool blend knit
6 - 3/4" buttons from the collection
seam tape - used to stabilize the shoulder seams
stitch witchery - used to hem the sleeves & cardigan hem
There are no new construction techniques in this garment. It was a put the pattern down on the fabric, cut it out, serge it together and wallah! Cardigan is done. I don't even have to fit it because it ALWAYS fits. That's what I love about a good TNT pattern!
So I'll let the pictures do the talking...
Buttons placed on the placket
for placement & arrangement
I used a rounded edge buttonhole
Buttons from the stash
work perfectly with the fabric
The sleeve w/stitch witchery in the hems
A back view
The front unbuttoned
My mojo is back and I have several things I want to make and make soon. Even though it's back, it was slow rolling this past weekend. No matter that I've started off slowly, I'm confident that there are loads of beautiful garments waiting to come out of my sewing machine...so stay tuned!
...as always more later!
