Sewing Pearl

Wrap cardigan pattern by Tilly & The Buttons

This is the latest pattern in the ever expanding range by Tilly and the Buttons and I think it might be my new favourite. If you are not familiar with the patterns, they are fab. Not only do they come with a full instruction book, including pictures, they also print their patterns on really heavy weight paper. No more accidentally ripping your patterns made from flimsy tissue! The Pearl wrap cardigan was simple to construct and I am really happy with the result. I hacked the pattern slightly so I could make my cardigan from a non stretch fabric but I intend to make a few more from jersey and knit fabrics now I have had my first attempt.

Which Fabric To Choose?

Tilly suggests using a medium weight knit fabric so jersey is a great option.
