I am following up on the cardigan that I am making out of French terry stretch knit fabric. I want to show you how things are going. In this photo I do not have the side seams sewn yet. I am liking how it is looking. I would like to point out that I made the pockets longer because I have long hands and I am always carrying things in my pockets. In this photo there is still quiet a bit left to do.
In this photo I am just about finished. I have to hem the cardigan and all closure which will more than likely be buttons. This cardigan does look much better on me but it is difficult to take a picture of yourself. I am very pleased with this cardigan. Using the cotton French terry knit fabric is certainly going to provide warmth. I do think that I will be very comfy.
I don’t really need it too much now because it is getting so very warm. I will be cooler here in Texas after today. When it does get cool again in the fall season I will so ready for it.
Using stretch fabric, especially the French terry, has been a huge learning experience for me. I would encourage anyone who is thinking about starting/trying something new in sewing or anything to go for it. It can be so very rewarding.
