I have had Kwik Sew 2759 for a long time, ever since I saw Gigi review it on Pattern review (oh look, that was back in 2001). I made it a few times but I think I have only made it once since I had a coverstitch machine. I had never come across a tutorial that addresses how to start off on the coverstitching and get a nice finish that doesn't ravel, so I had filed making cardigans in the it's-all-too-hard-for-me-to-wrap-my-brain-around basket and not given them much thought. Then one day it occured to me that I could hem it before applying the band. Yay, I can make cardigans again.
This is the photo to show that it does sparkle - a lot. I am going to wear it to a wedding later this month I think.
Here I have shortened it back to about the length drafted by Kwik Sew. I am thinking it might be slightly less dowdy at this length. I am also thinking of tracing the next size down at the shoulders, as it seems a little too wide there.
Can't wait to sew a couple more. I love cardigans.
