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 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?
