Black Sadie Cardi

Added May 16, 2009

Leeds, United Ki...






Here is a cardi I drafted from the sadie pattern a while ago. I added a scoop neck and sleeves. I want to add a few more buttons at the bottom but i’m not sure whether I should since I hope to be expanding in the next few months (as you can probably see!).
I finally got my hands on some proper cuffing/ribbing which is virtually impossible to find in fabric stores these days, I had to ask my sis-in-law in London to go to a shop she knew had some.

Material Notes

Black Jersey
Black Ribbing




Garment Type
Casual, Classic, Preppy


Thanks to Rolls and Rems in London, lewisham for the ribbing (visit this store if you can!)

    Wow – this is brilliant! Thanks for the ribbing tip, I’m a south london gal and I couldnt find ribbing anywhere so this is great!

    By the way, next time you are in london – or tell your sis in law – you must go to Fabrics Galore in Clapham, it is the best fabric shop in town in my opinion, well worth a visit, its a total hidden gem ;)

    Congratulations Bola!!! I’m so happy for you! This is a beautiful cardigan- great work! I love the scoop neck and the ribbing detail! I think you should go ahead and add the buttons on the bottom- you can always just keep them unbuttoned! That’s how I wear my cardigans :) It’s fabulous!

    Bola, what a beautiful cardigan! I hope it will keep on fitting your tummy, congratulations! I wish you all the best with the pregnancy and am looking forward to your next projects! (I like your style a lot and I suppose you will be sewing a lot soon to fit your tummy!) Like nikishell, if you have the time to post the alterations, I would love to see them! My sister loves to wear this kind of cardi’s, maybe I could make one for her or maybe she’ll want to make one herself! And wow, you found ribbing! I will remember the shopname, if ever I go back to London… But it’s quite far from the center… Kosmika, if someone tells you about the online store, I’m interested too! Have a nice day everyone :)

    Congratulations! :) …and the cardi is really nice. I agree with you on ribbing, it’s soooooo hard to find and when you find it it’s awful… do anyone know a good online (in the EU) store???
