Thread: I used up some blue thread that has been kicking around in my thread stash for some time and just used some black thread for the overlock machine.
This is another fabric that has been in my stash for a long time. I believe I purchased this fabric from Fanny Fabrics when they were closing their doors many moons ago.
I used this fabric as a wearable muslin as I tried out McCall's 6844. This sweater won't be my last. I do like this pattern but for me it is not perfect. Close, very close, but not perfect.
This is a petite-able pattern but foolishly I chose to not to use the petite adjustment markings. I cut version B out at first and then decided that it was too long and re-cut the hemline using version A's hemline markings. I know that the dropped back hemline is the look of the moment but I'm not really sold that it is the look for me. I don't hate it, I could just take it or leave it. I think on the next one I will leave it.
I didn't like the wide shoulder seam and dropped armhole. I did go back and take in the armhole at the upper sleeve cap. On the next make I will reshape this area perhaps going down a couple of sizes. Otherwise, I do like the fit.
I agree with others that this cardigan does not need any interfacing and I'm glad I followed the advice of others who worked with this pattern before me.
Until the next one, Happy Sewing!
