This time I sewed New Look's 6164. I loved the lines of the cardigan but I found the material a bit stiff. I wanted to try it in a lighter fabric that flowed. I liked the sizing so i saved a lot of time not having to trace it out again.
I am not sure on the instructions for the collar. I think I made an error in serging too many seams, as it made the collar a bit heavy. I like the results however. I think I need to tack the bottom part of the collar again to keep it in place, I bothers me when it twists.
I chose a cool loud print that is sparkly. You can't really tell from the pictures but it id sparkly. Not the kind that flakes off. I bought this fabric a few years ago from Tissus Mayda on Chabanel street. I bought several meters of it. I already made a dress and I wanted to use up my stash - Go Stashbusting!
All in all it was a quick evening project that I will actually wear. I may try this pattern a third time and not serge all the seams and see if it hangs differently. You can tell I want to get rid of my outstanding stash.
