Are you starting to see a pattern?

I used my shiny new brain* to make a copy of yet another RTW cardigan from the thrift store.

I picked up the fabric at last year's American Sewing Expo in Novi, MI. I saw a friend there buying the same fabric. (Looking at you, Cynthia. Have you used yours yet?)  It feels nice and comfy and soft, but its one of those knits that sticks to itself. You know what I mean. The background looks black buts its actually really dark brown. The cardigan has the front extending into the collar.

I made the top underneath it a couple of months earlier but didn't show it yet because I knew I was going to make something with this print fabric to go with it. It's yet another version of Kwiksew 3658-one of my Hall of Fame patterns.

*I don't want this blog to stray too much off the topic. I've been recuperating. That's why things have been a bit slow in the sewing room. I am very happy to be back at it.
I want to thank all of you I know in real life and who also follow my blog for all your prayers, kind thoughts and encouragement. You don't know how happy I will be to see you all!


  1. This is awesome! I love your fabric choice. And how nice to be recovering. Best wishes.

  2. You look great. Glad you feel better. We love ya! See you soon.
