I made this cardigan from a 70cm piece of unusual fabric; rubber/plastic coated jersey knit, stamped in a snakeskin scale print that combines beautifully toughness and elegance. I really didn’t have enough fabric to fit my initial plans and this end result is a bit of design magic to get the pieces out of the fabric I had! I needed a small amount of lining to finish and luckily I had just enough scraps of silk jersey (leftover from a dress I made 5yrs ago!) to finish it. I drafted my own pattern from a cardigan I already have that fits me, and made up some of the extras such as the long collar/tie to use up all of my fabric piece…
I have more construction details on my blog.
