New To Me: SBCC

6 Jun

It is Indie Pattern Month 2016 (IPM2016)! Hurrah! I have spent the last month collecting the various patterns, fabrics, notions and potions necessary. And I am soo excited.

The first challenge of the month  is ‘New to Me’ – sewing an item from an Indie pattern brand that you have never sewn from before. I’ve been eyeing up the Cabernet Cardigan from Skinny Bitch* Curvy Chick (SBCC) for almost a year now and as I’ve never made anything from SBCC I decided it would be perfect for my first entry for the IPM2016 contests. Plus making a cardigan waws #4 on my New Years Resolutions – so it’s practically a nececity.

Now I shalln’t write a whole heap about this garment here but should you be interested you can head over to my post on the Monthly Stitch.

The various bits and bobs I used to make my cardigan include:

  • Fabric: Ponte something or other, which I bought from the Sew Over It stall at the Knitting and Stiching show in March
  • Buttons: Crendon Imitation Leather Buttons 19mm Black, from Minivera Craft
  • Thread: 100% Polyester Guttermann thread Col 141, from MacCulloch & Wallis
  • Prym 10mm transparent elastic, from Ray Stitc

      Its a really wonderful pattern. I’d also had it on my wish list for a while and it is well worth it! Easy to follow instructions (not overly detailed but you’d have no problem) and its quick!

  1. Not an old man’s cardigan | The Monthly Stitch - June 6, 2016

    […] I had initally planned to put blue star shaped elbow patches on, and had sewn the on before doing the sleeve and side seams. But once these were done I realised the patches were in the wrong place and after taking them off, wasn’t able to satisfactorly reapply them.  But while the cardigan lacks my originally inteded embelishments, I’m actually really pleased with its simplicity and love the fit. If you’re interested theres a ton more photos and a bit more chat on my blog.
