New Look 6922 Modified

Pattern Description: wardobe pattern consisting of cardigan,pants,top, and dress

Pattern Sizing:10-22

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?I modified it.

Were the instructions easy to follow?I did not use them. Instead I follow the tip for sewing knits in the Wendy Mullin book Sew U Home Stretch.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I love the simplicity of the cardigan.

Fabric Used:cotton jersey

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I cut a size 14 and graded to a 16, but after some fitting I do believe I end up with a complete size 14. I also did not have enough material for the facing and collar because I had to match stripes,so I added a ruffle around the entire neckline, front, and hem of the cardi. I saw this treatment done on some cardi on HSN.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?Definitely! I am planning to make the short sleeved cardi view B in a white cotton jersey.

Conclusion: Great for a light jacket and to wear as part of a suit for summer.

Lovely cardigan and I've seen several ruffled cardigans in stores too.
