SECOND WATERFALL CARDIGAN OF THE MONTH...

...I decided that before I filed this pattern back in the drawer,
McCall's 7262

I'd go ahead and make one I'd planned for my Darling Daughter.  I pushed the envelope on this second waterfall cardigan and used a light weight stripped knit from Hancock's (mmmmmm!).  I did manage to get the side seams matched; and thankfully the buttonholes went in much easier than with the one I made earlier.
Turned out not too bad for a pattern that isn't actually suitable for stripes.  Hope my Baby Girl likes it!!!!

  1. Faye, this is nice. I'm sure she'll love it. And when you say you pushed the envelope on this one (using a stripped fabric), I was reminded of your bio in the "About Me." It will eventually work when we push the envelope! Very nice. :-)

    1. Thank you JC. And yes, pushing the envelope is sometimes necessary to pull me out of my comfort zones.

  7. Waterfall cardis are addictive - I sewed a bunch last year and wear them regularly.

    1. Hi Clio - how's the baby doing? Yes, they are addictive and so handy to grab on the way out the door.
