This cardigan was planned back in 2016 in December sewing plans. I had time to finish it in December, but as I had sewn only two things I decided to move whole plans for January and share it in 2017.
It was my first time sewing with sweatshirt fabrics, and I loved it! It was easy and fun to work with! Especially after cutting viscose, I was in the “cutting heaven” with this one!))) lol
It was easy and fast to sew Newcastle Cardigan. Thread Theory did a great job with instructions and pattern details. I cut out V2 but I went or smaller collar piece)
Personally I didn’t like the facing, it was weirdly flapping (still flapping), all around and when you put the cardigan on you need to correct it, and pull it in its place. I did solve this problem for the back; I handstitched it trying to make it invisible. But I think the best way there is stitch normally while sewing, so it will look good and stay put!
I also handstitched the cuff on the sleeve. )
Well, I think that’s it…
I would like to know a better way to put buttons. I didn’t like much the look of the standard buttonhole on this thick fabrics. I might use snaps for the next time. Do you have any tips? I would highly appreciate!)
Oh! I forgot! I shortened the sleeves and the bodice by approx 5 cm. I cut the PDF pattern out, and then I just asked Alejandro to stay still, and I place the paper on him and measured (asking him) where the sleeve and bodice should finish. If you do it this way, take into consideration the width of the cuffs! Or you can cut it out too short.
