I Sewed!

I finished 3 McCall's 6844 view B cardigans this weekend. If I weren't so comfortable sitting on the couch watching curling, I might get up and take a picture. Nah, not happening! It's amazing how different you can make the same pattern with different fabrics! The cardi I'm currently wearing is a rich plum rib knit. Very stretchy...I had to adjust the differential feed on the serger to keep it from stretching. The other two were made with nice pontes that were part of a Fabric Mart mystery box. I love those! The stability of the ponte make them more jacket-like.  One is a beautiful textured coral, which matches a scrub top I seldom wear, so I may wear it more, and it will be nice come Spring. The other is a zebra like print and will look fabulous with a black pair of pants. Already 4 makes from this pattern...I'd call that a winner!
