This year I’m wrapped in the cardi-wrap that many sewers did last year. So here’s my version.
I chose to make view A with a soft cotton/spandex burgundy piece that I’ve had for over two years. The original fabric that was supposed to be used was a marle grey but I felt that I needed a wrap with colour. I’ve not adjusted the pattern and I’ve used M size. Next time I’ll use S size. Normally on the shoulder seam I would use ‘seams great’ for stability but I couldn’t figure out where this would be. The centre back neck gathers are sewn with swimwear elastic so the gathers are even. So I’ve figured out a couple of ways to wear it and I know there are more…
The top is view E from the same pattern. I’ve done small pleats on the front neckline instead of the gathers. There wasn’t enough fabric to make the gathers a feature on this striped knit.
The jean were store bought. I’ve yet to attempt making jeans.
That's a great colour on you Maria. Nice work! Now you can join the 2603 party!! I'll have to work on you re the jeans.
Alison, would you believe I already have the fabric? LOL.
I'd believe anything.
Great cardi and top and that colour looks great on you.
I can see a jeans workshop coming along.
very cute! I like the fact that you went with color. It was the perfect choice
i can't wait for simplicity to go on sale at JoAnn's so I can snatch up this pattern.
We sorely need a JoAnn's in Australia.
All of these pieces look so wonderful on you! The burgundy color really suits you. The green dress is so polished.
