|We are so excited to do our first post of Liberate Creativity! In honor of Presidents Day we thought it would be fit to share our Inauguration Cardi with you! The perfect little cardigan for any age, that adds a little sophistication to any outfit.
Want to make on too? Great let’s get started! First with the pattern:
|Grab a shirt that fits well, a little loose is best. Turn it inside out.
1. Smooth it out flat
2. Then fold it in half
|Then you have a bodice piece (for the sweater we will use the same pattern piece for the front and back)|
|Next for the sleeve:
6. Line the sleeve up with the fold of the sleeve against the edge of the paper and trace the arm.
7. When you get to the top, fold the shirt over so the seam is exposed and laying flat and trace the curve.
|Then to cut out the pieces I used this white sweater that was in the “re-do” pile at my house. Any sweater will do, just find a sweater you wish was a cardigan.|
|Lastly I added a button
18. I sewed a button on the right side and I folded a small piece of elastic in half to create a loop and sewed it to the inside of the left side. The loop goes around the button.
|It can be worn closed…|
|Or open. Either way there is some ruffled goodness happening.
See, what did I tell you?! Pretty great right? Makes me want to make one instantly! At any rate, be sure to visit Shwin & Shwin and become an addict as well!
