A copy of me!

This is my daughter, Jane, in the copy she made of the copy of the cardigan I copied last week. I think she did a great job and I'm happy that she is so happy with the results. I like hers even more than mine. I will be borrowing it!

Can you believe she decreased her stash 25% just by sewing up just one piece of fabric!

The hardest parts for her was squeezing it out of the fabric available (we eliminated the waist seam) and threading the serger and cover stitch (I helped a bit).  


I am very proud of her (in all ways, not just sewing). Love you, Man!


  1. She did a great job! Like mother, like daughter.

  2. Jane must be a good student - her cardigan looks really nice. With that print, not having to match at a waist seam was a good idea even if she had plenty of fabric. Did yours have a waist seam? If so, you get an A+ for matching.

    1. She is a good student. its nice having a daughter who's also interested in the craft.
      Mine did have the extra seams. Since it was a muslin, I made no attempt to match the pattern. It matched itself!
