Did you know there are some amazing sewing patterns at Swoon? I knew they had cute sewing patterns for bags; but there are several girls and women’s PDF’s as well. Like this free Scarf Neck Cardigan pattern!
The girls Scarf Neck Cardigan pattern is a free PDF available in girls and women’s sizes. You have to set up an account at Swoon Sewing Patterns to download your patterns. (There are free bag patterns too!)
I emailed Alicia, curator of Swoon Patterns and the Swoon blog for permission to use the logo in one of my images for Pinterest. (Click here to pin my Scarf Neck Cardigan:)
She said, “Admittedly I’m not a clothing designer, so I hope it worked well for you despite that:)“.
How very modest, because it’s a fabulous pattern. I can’t wait to try a bag! Also, I like that she writes lots of happy faces, like me.
There is a diagram that shows how the pattern pieces fit together, and a list of steps to put it together. You won’t have any trouble if you’ve set a sleeve in before. I needed the illustration to see how the neck and shoulders fit together; but didn’t need the directions.
This is a lighter weight jersey knit from Girl Charlee. I used red and pink thread in my serger, so you can hardly see any finishes on the inside. I finished all the hems (except sleeves) with my serger too. I normally don’t, but I think it looks fine in this case. I graded the size 10 up to a 12 for Bella.
By the way, I’m not freezing my kid out. We have snow on the ground in these photos, but it was 60 degrees out.
All the snow melted in one day; and a now we have snow again after some briefly nice weather. You don’t even know how to dress here. I’m like an old lady, capable of griping about the weather for hours. But I won’t today.
I’m hoping to do some self care sewing, if I can survive these kids all stuck in the house. It has taken me all day to write these few paragraphs…I’d better go before they
