I make most patterns once or twice, which would be really hard for a weeks worth of wearing. But as I got to the end of the summer I now find that I have made 4 Julia Cardigans. So I will be participating in the One Week One Pattern Challenge with the Julia Cardigan by Welcome to the Mouse House. I also have fabric to make 2 more, in a warmer weight fabric . . which I might need because the mornings and evenings are getting quite cool.
|Purple 3/4 length sleeve|
|Burgundy 3/4 sleeve - single layer collar|
Pattern: Julia Cardigan by Welcome to the Mouse House.
Fabric: lightweight jersey, purchased at my local Fabricland
Modification: sleeve width on the long-sleeve version is quite wide. I narrowed the sleeve and the cuff by almost 2 inches. I prefer a more fitted sleeve.
Likes: I love this pattern, it is the perfect weight for summer/spring/fall. It goes really well as a casual look with jeans or shorts and dressier look with dresses and skirts. The instructions are really clear
Dislikes: other than the sleeve width it's a great pattern. Personal preference: I prefer the double layer collar version compared to the single layer version. The grey and the purple have the double layer collar and the burgundy has a single layer (because I didn't have enough fabric for a double layer)
