Me-Made Bottom of the Pile

As Me-Made May winds down, I’m posting about a few… Ahem… Less successful makes.

This cardigan is from New Look 6330.

The pattern is cute. It has a fit and flare cut with an interesting double loop front closure. I wore it to work quite often when it was new, last spring.

Time had not been kind. The fabric got stretched out and faded quite a bit. One of the loop closures got lost in the wash. And since I was new to sewing knits at the time, I didn’t do as good a job as I should have on the front band.

So, New Look 6330, you’re relegated to home office only. I’d like to make another with better fabric and better construction.

I live in Connecticut, USA with my husband and my dog, in an old house outfitted with a sewing room, a garden, an orchard, and a big liquor cabinet.
