Description

Blue fleece used instead of jersey. This material was in moms stash for a long time. With the cold weather around the corner I made this for her to wear. Its a simple fleece that is very warm & flattering for all women. Moms had some great compliments. With the material as I did not have enough had to make the sleeves shorter. That works just fine because it wears like a wrap or waterfall cardigan. The pattern is very easy to follow. What took time was making the bias tape with the tool. It was a great opportunity to coordinate & the extra effort was worth it. You could use this on a plane or while traveling. It feels like a blanket. I may try to experiment with cuddle fabric. This is a vintage pattern from 1991.

Material Notes

blue fleece. Bias tape tool & some poly blend material to match the shade of fleece.
