Fall Sewing #7 Butterick 5760 Cardigan Green Dress Dilemma cont.

I'm thinking this green floral ponte knit fabric is going to be a beautiful cardigan!

Green Floral Ponte Knit Fabric

I liked Butterick 5760 Cardigan I made here.  I wanted to change up the neck line.  It seamed a little too high and I thought a little more of a soft V in the front would be nice.

For some reason this fabric just excites me!  I love florals and this print is just lovely! It is almost the exact same color green as the RTW knit dress!

Since this pattern was already "fit to me" when I made it back in July, it only took me about an hour to sew it up!

I have finally caught up on my Project Runway watching.  I have to say I think I blushed the whole episode.  I'm not a intimates type sewer, wearer, or watcher.  I'm really liking Laurie, she has the sweetest disposition.  I'm not sorry that Blake is heading home.  He's a good designer but he's immature and still has a lot to learn. 

Can't wait for this week's episode, I don't think I will be blushing with dumpster diving for electronics. 

Until next time....................
