Okay, this is ANOTHER item based on a cardigan I saw in the BCBG winter catalogue. I spend way too much time perusing through it!
This time, I used McCall’s M5937, but made it one size smaller, and re-sized the lapel so that it looked more like the picture in the catalogue. I made a sash but decided it didn’t look really nice, so I added a fake sash in the back for some more detail. I didn’t buy enough fabric but luckily, I had just enough faux suede left over from my birthday dress project, so I used it on the lapel and the fake sash. The cardigan fabric is a really nice oatmeal-coloured wool knit blend lined with leftover bemberg lining from previous projects. I top stitched around the edges to give the cardigan a more finished look.
Although it’s not clear in the pattern, the pieces are actually all cut on a bias, so it has a very interesting subtle pattern to it.
