Sewing is therapy for me. I hoard fabric, patterns, notions, and spend more time shopping for fabric than I care to admit...

I have a new favorite cardigan pattern!  Have you seen this one?  It is the Helene Shaw Collar Cardigan by Jalie.  I love everything about this!

The pockets on this are so clever and just the right size for your phone, extra kleenex, etc.  

I used a cotton/Lycra knit from Stof.  I wish you could feel how AMAZING this fabric is!  I really love the color as well.  

Oh, I made the dress as well!  It is also from Stof.  And, it is equally as amazing as the blue!  The dress is an old reliable Simplicity Cynthia Rowley.  I've made this one numerous times!  I only had a yard of the print, not sure what made me decide on only a yard, but it was a great length for a tunic!  

When I wore this for reals, I wore it with Navy blue leggings.  I received quite a few compliments and it is as comfortable as can be outfit!

I really love this fabric maker and I LOVE Jalie patterns!

Thanks for reading!



  1. Very nice cardi, love the pockets. On your PR review, you mentioned "Seweyekey knit hem tape" - what is it?

  2. I'm a huge fan of Jalie too :) Love your sweater and dress! Beautiful blue colour.
