Pink Black Retro Abstract Print ITY Knit Cardigan

I took the McCall 6844 pattern and redrafted it to be shorter, more rounded at the bottom and pleats at the shoulder, then I added shoulder pleats!  I can't believe it turned out!

Abstract Print Cardigan

I had a yard of this retro abstract print ITY knit fabric left over from a dress.  It made a perfect cardigan for my black ponte knit sheath dress for the summer.

Sewing will be slow the next few weeks since I've decided to start remodel/redecorate the kitchen. Dear daughter is home for the summer I might as well put her to work!  (Truly she's much more flexible and able to do stand in odd positions to paint and stuff!)

I'll keep you updated..............

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

  1. Great job on the redraft and really like that fabric. I think I have some in my stash somewhere. Stash is out of control and don't even know what I have anymore. MUST STOP BUYING! Is that possible. Good luck with the kitchen redo. Post pics.
