I really love this Butterick 6330 pattern. I've made it at least 3, if not 4 times.
We've all seen how this Jalie Helene Shaw Collar Cardi is getting a lot of love and deservedly so! I am included in all that love!
I decided to combine these two looks with a simple modification or two and here is what this match looks like!
At first I thought, this cardi reminded me of a lab coat! Not a look I was going for!
But somehow after seeing photos, things can look better, right?
Here's an inside peek at the pockets and a modification I made which was to miter the front and lower hemlines.
Yes, I do still need to get my applique scissors out and trim away the excess fabric.
And here's the dress! I so love this fabric!
You can tell I shortened the sleeves of the cardi to elbow length. On the dress, I, for once, followed the instructions to make a narrow hem at the neckline and shoulders. Typically I cut bands and sew those to the garment, but since this knit was so fabulous to work with (no rolling edges, stretchy but returned to original shape) I decided to follow the directions and simply make a narrow hem (gasp!). Guess what? It worked. :)
You'll see more versions of these garments in the future. I'm not done with either of these patterns yet!
Thanks for reading!
