I recently had the opportunity to test a lovely cardigan pattern for Greenstyle Creations. It had been awhile since I’ve done any pattern testing for myself, being pregnant and all, but I decided I’d give it a go.
One of the many reasons that I love Greenstyle Creations patterns, is for their ease of assembly. The no-trim pages fit together flawlessly, and makes piecing the pattern together very quick. The layering also allows you to pick, and print, as little or as many sizes as you wish. I’m a huge fan of the layers option, it truly helps save ink.
Ok. Back to the actual pattern itself.
The Sunday Cardigan by Greenstyle has several options for customization. You can make it a duster length, mid-knee length, long sleeves, sleeveless, with or without a hood, with or without pockets, and there’s even an option for lace-up cuffs. Seriously! Did you catch that? Lace-up cuffs! I already have my teen daughter begging for one with lace-up cuffs. The huge variety of fabrics that you can use to make this cardigan, will truly make it a staple in your wardrobe.
Now, to talk about the version I made for myself. I chose the mid-knee length, as I’m not a personal fan of the duster length on my 5′ frame. (That doesn’t mean that you can’t rock a duster length on your petite frame, make whatever you fancy.) I also opted out of pockets, I know, I know, boring right? But a hood, I could not resist, and let me tell you, this hood is the perfect size. I used a light sweater fabric I purchased from Joann Fabric and Craft Store. I won’t lie, the fabric was difficult to sew with, but the end product is truly gorgeous. I really love how this cardigan turned out. And best of all? It works wonderfully for my last few weeks of pregnancy, and will be just as wonderful post pregnancy as well. I think I may try one in french terry next.
Truthfully, any style you choose, you can’t go wrong with this cardigan. It’s a rather quick sew, I promise you won’t be disappointed. So, go, now! Click the link below, and get your copy of the Sunday Cardigan by Greenstyle. Go!
