The Classic Cardigan: Timeless, versatile, appealing…what’s not to love? This Forever 18 Inches pattern has been several...
Easy to mkae and just what I wanted. It was so nice to have specific info about required fabric type discussed in the pattern. Using the right fabric in this pattern is a must.
This pattern sews up easily, fits the dolls perfectly and looks great!
Always a pleasure getting your patterns. Some are easier than others. But makes me push myself into new experience in my sewing skills.
I just finished the second one with bands on the cuffs and waist. Forgot to check my fabric stretch and cut it out of a rayon 2-way stretch fabric. Using the bands on the waist and cuffs make a lightweight knit really fast and easy to finish...no more rippled hems! Because my fabric was so delicate and stretchy, I did use tissue paper when sewing some of the seams, and also used 1/2" stay tape under the back edges for more stability before adding the snaps. It turned out great! I would definitely recommend this adorable shirt pattern!
