Julia Cardigan in Garnet



Julia Cardigan in knit from Fabric Mart

Time for take two on my Julia Cardigan, the first one was in a leopard knit.  I have been working my way through some fabric piles.  I had a pile of knits on the floor and I am happy to say that pile is almost all sewn up!  This garnet color rayon knit came from Fabric Mart a few months ago.
I had three yards of this fabric and part of it went toward a Plantain tee for Kaitlyn.  It is her favorite top, I think she had 5 or 6 now!

I had enough leftover to make this Julia cardigan and it is a perfect little cardigan for those fall days.  A bit of cool in the air but not time for a long sleeve sweater.

The collar is a one piece, so you can see the wrong side and your hem.  I am going to always double the fabric so the wrong side doesn't show.  I state this provided I have enough fabric.  This garnet one I just squeaked out of the yardage remaining.

Speaking of this garnet color, I might call it Marsala, one of the Pantone colors for Fall 2015.  Take a look at this article, Marsala is #7.  I know this is a simple top to make, but whenever I get to sew and make a garment, it is a good day.  What is your favorite quick garment to make?
