Long Jersey Cardigan

Added Feb 28, 2011

New York, New Yo...






What to wear on those in-between days when Spring is nearing but a chill is still in the air? A long cardigan over a fun summer dress! We found this remnant of Roberto Cavalli jersey at Mood fabrics, which lends a bit of a wild side to this versatile cardi.

Make it in light wool for a cozy layering piece, make it in a heavier wool to be worn as a coat, or a solid colored jersey for a go-to wardrobe staple.

Shot at 3rd Ward, a Brooklyn-based innovation incubator. Anyone can come to 3rd Ward to work, play, learn, grow and, ultimately, transform. Visit www.3rdward.com to learn more.

    I am looking forward to receiving my mag to obtain this pattern as I too will be making it up in many different fabrics. Keep up the good work as your site is a great addition to the magazines.

    Super cute! I drafted a very similar pattern last year and have made it in every color. It’s perfect for any season :)

    This would look nice with slightly shorter, wide kimono sleeves as well.

    It looks fabulous in that print! Is the dress based on the Amanda blouse?
