I had the idea of making a loose wrapdress/cardigan. Because I didn’t had enough fabric, I made a shorter version first. Today I will start the dress version.
Very easy to make, no pattern needed.
Edit: A little how to: I used a basis pattern for the sleeves and the armholes. In the front you have to lenghten from the inner corner of the schoulder. This will be the shortest point of the cardigan in the front. Make it long enought to wear a belt. The lower part of of the frontpiece will be the longest point. The backpiece is just a simple A-lined piece with the basic armhole and a little drop for the neckline. I’ve shaped mine a bit half rounded. The sideseam of the backpiece should be the same hight as the sideseam of the frontpiece. Stitch the schoulders together, then attach the sleeves and as last close the sleeves and sideseams. I didn’t finish the seam but the front and the sleeves.
