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
