Pattern Review Simplicity 2560

Sku# VNE30119093
95% Viscose 4% Nylon 1% Elastine

Prewash: Cold water, hand wash cycle, air dry
This knit shrunk 14″ in length and none in width.

Notions: Fusi Knit, thread, clear elastic

Alterations: This is not a fitted garment so the only alteration needed was an 1-3/4″ FBA to make sure the underbust seam was under the bust!

Construction Details: I made view B with one addition to the instructions. I applied a 5/8″ strip of Fusi Knit to the shoulder seam

and back neckline.

I followed the instructions for applying clear elastic to the sleeve facing but I think this step is unnecessary.

Finished Sleeve

Serged Seams

Topstitching on Collar

1″ Hem

Back View

Conclusion: This is a different take on the very popular cardigan. It can be causal as seen on the pattern envelope or kicked up a notch with a dress. This would also look great with a contrasting collar.
