Another take on Simplicity 3634 ( Misses or Plus Size Pants, Skirt, Knit Cardigan and Tops).
The first time around I went with the cowl neck, but noted that the fit of the top minus the cowl neck would make a great relaxed tee.
This top is an instant gratification garment and works well in any wardrobe, just 3 simple pieces. All the seams were serged and for the hems used steam-a-seam and final stitched. The fabric is from MetroTextile during the last PR fabric excursion, a bold abstract print in poly-lycra fabric. Thinking back and comparing my rtw garments to my sewn garments, I seem to play it safe with rtw garments and sticking to solid colors, but when purchasing fabric I select bold prints.... mmmm wonder why...
Initially I wore the cardigan as pictured with a solid top, thinking that wearing a printed top with the cardigan would be a bit much. However, that quickly changed when I wanted to wear the cardigan again and decided to go the way of the wind and paired it with the printed top..
I also worked this cardigan up using Premier yarn in burgundy (which I found out recently is produced by Deborah Norville)... whadaya know.... well off to make another S3634 to pair with this cardigan.
Until then everyone have a Great Weekend.
