I could blather on about my long list of unblogged sewn garments, but I'm going to jump straight to my latest makes instead.
Last week I was in Tessuti for the first time in months, and was lucky enough to try on their new pattern, the Megan Longline Cardigan before it was released. I bought fabric on that day, printed off the pattern the night it was released, and sewed it over the weekend.
Here it is!
I made it out of a very dark navy viscose jersey from Tessuti, and made the size extra small. I didn't change anything. The instructions are fantastic, and the cardi comes together beautifully.
I don't have a great deal to add except that I intend to make moooooore! This fills a real gap in my wardrobe and fits the aesthetic I love. I really love the swingy-ness of this cardi!
Obviously I needed a new skirt to go with my Megan! Totally logical, right???!!! I made a plain black Vogue 1247 out of a black stretch remnant from Tessuti I've had for ages. I made the size 12 and lengthened it by 10cm. No other changes. The waistband is a smidge big - something to remedy for next time!
