Just finished my favorite cardi/jacket M6996. Love that is it an easy sew, for instant gratification if you've been in a slump. I don't remember where I got the fabric, but it's been in my stash for a while. I also noticed that I should have paid attention to the front facing and matched it. Oh well...too late now and I am going to wear it proudly.
This is the 4th time I made it. The alteration that I made were to reduce the armscye depth by 2"; they there were too deep; I took the same amount from the sleeve cap; last I narrowed the sleeve. I felt they were too baggy.
The changes that I made worked out for me. I also like the fact that it's a bit shorter than the 1st one I made straight from the envelope.
Thanks and Happy Sewing!!!!
