Misses quick and easy cardigan in three lengths, loose fitting with front and back gathers, yoke and sleeve are in one, band and collar are in one and the option of two different hemlines.
Fabric: Poly knit rib with very little stretch
Color: Mustard yellow
Notion: just thread, I didn't need any stabilizer at the edges or hems since this fabric is a sturdy knit with very little stretch.
I really like this pattern. It was a easy and quick sew. Not too many pieces to this pattern. The pieces matched perfectly together for an fast and easy sew.
The only part of this garment that I didnt care for was the finish of the band. The instructions said to finish the edge of the band with a 5/8 narrow hem. I put it on after doing this but it seemed too bulky at the back of the neck where the band folds. So what I did was fold the hemmed edge of the band to the inside so it lines up with the seam edge of the cardigan where the band joins the cardigan. I top stitched it all the way around as close to the ditch as possible. I then I gave it a good press to flatten it down and create a fold in the band. This was much better after trying it on the band folded nicely with no bulk.
This is my second time making this tank top. This has become one of my favorites because of the front darts which gives the garment a good fit.
