I have been on a self-imposed sewing hiatus for a while now, so I can focus on some other things. However, lately I have really been itching to sew. I miss it! So, I’ve decided I need to sew something for myself.
I want to sew something quick and easy, without any alterations for fit, and I also want to use fabric from my stash. I have settled on Simplicity 2603:
It meets all of my requirements, plus it is fun and trendy!
The fabric I am going to use is a heathered charcoal matte jersey I bought several years ago from Fabric.com. I can’t remember what project the fabric was originally intended for, but as soon as it arrived I knew it wouldn’t work. I don’t really love the fabric (it has a very synthetic-y feel), but it should work well for the cardi-wrap.
I’ve been torn between making the longer or shorter version of the cardi-wrap. I think overall I would like the shorter version better on me, but there are a lot more wearing options with the longer version. In the end, my fabric choice is going to decide for me: I only have enough for the shorter version. I hope I have enough fabric for the cuffs.
I will keep you posted as I make progress!
