I must confess… I completely messed up and forgot what day of the week my post was supposed to be up. No real reason, I just mixed up dates, oops!
I owned each of the three patterns being featured on this tour already, so I decided to take part in the tour as my goal this year has been to sew from my stash (pattern and fabric) as much as possible. My plan was to hopefully sew all three, but realistically I knew I only had time for one so I decided on the cardigan*, as I can always use cardis!

I wanted to sew the long sleeves, unfortunately though I didn’t have enough fabric to make that happen. I thought I did, but no (I possibly did but may not have laid out my pattern pieces well enough) 🙁 Luckily I had cut the front and back pieces out first and not the sleeves! For now though here is a sleeveless cardigan. I do have enough fabric for short sleeves but I’d prefer 3/4 length or full length.
I did the regular length as A- I’m not too sure if I’m a duster type of person and B- I didn’t have enough fabric! Obviously..
Oh, this is the XL size.
It’s a pretty quick sew, especially considering I haven’t hemmed it yet while I debate the no sleeves thing. (I’m not really a sleeveless or short sleeve cardigan person either.) The whole point of a cardigan for me is to keep my arms warm. So I’m not sure if I will keep this as a cardigan or cut it up to use it for someone smaller.
BUT I must mention that a sleeveless cardigan is in fact one of the options included in the pattern (and instructions for not hemming it are included as well), so technically this is in fact a completed garment! It’s just not the version I set out to make.
Anyway, because I mixed up my dates I didn’t get my pictures until the day I was supposed to have posted, which meant indoor pics because it is pouring outside! It is dark inside my house once Fall hits so pics are not the best indoors (anytime really but especially in the autumn and winter). So I apologize for the dark, somewhat blurry photos. I will retake them later in the week on my day off.
I feel like this post is a whole bunch of nothing… or maybe it’s more like a series of unfortunate events.. Wah! I will add the Four Seasons Cardigan to a retry list (with enough fabric!) and do a proper review at later date.
