This time I made view D. I just love this little peplum!
Here's my review.
Description: Close-fitting cardigans (do not meet at center front) have collar extending into front band and narrow hem. A, C: shaped hemline, wrong side shows. This pattern calls for an interfaced collar/front band.
Sizing: this pattern comes in XS to M or L to XXL. I modified a medium.
Fabric: this is a soft, textured knit I purchased from JoAnn's. I love the color. Orange is so much fun!
I have to admit, I didn't look at the directions since this was my second time making this. The construction is very intuitive, that is if you've sewn a similarly-styled garment.
Here was my order of construction:
Serge shoulder seams, use elastic to stabilize the seam
Serge collar/back neck edge together
Serge collar/band to facing, press lightly and set aside
Cover-stitch sleeve hems
Serge sleeves in flat
Hem the little skirted piece--I used my cover-stitch
Attach the skirt to the bodice
Serge underam and side seam
Serge collar/band to garment and stabilize seam with clear, 1/4" elastic
Topstitch collar band seam to garment edge using a stretch stitch.
Piece of cake, right?
My usual 1/2" swayback adjustment and that was it!
Oh, yes, I plan on making this more! Here is version 1. I can see pulling this out in the spring and using some pretty prints and lightweight fabric to make some great go-to garments!
Here is version 1:
