This is the last of my Christmas sewing which luckily I finished just before leaving to come and stay with my parents in Switzerland for Christmas.
I saw the jersey in Stone Fabrics and immediately thought of Mum. Her favourite colours are bluey greens and turquoise and she loves interesting fabric (she has a degree in textiles) so this is perfect for her. The fabric is fabric is described as vintage, which actually describes it quite well. It has less stretch than the fabric I used for my Jenna Cardi but it works really well and I think will be lovely and warm.
The ribbing has been sat in my stash for quite a few years but I only had enough to the neck, bottom and button bands. I didn't realise as I was making it but I should have taken a bit off the length because it has gone frilly around the bottom. I offered to take it all the ribbing off and change it for main fabric binding instead but luckily Mum likes it how it is.
The pattern is the Jenna cardi from Muse Patterns which I have used before for me, and which I won in a giveaway from Rachel at House of Pinheiro. I made the size 38 this time and the fit is pretty perfect for Mum. I made option without the gathers on the front and I really like this. When I made another for me I will try this view. As before it sewed up really well and without problems, and because I had made it before it went together really quickly.
As before I got some pretty awesome poses off my Mum, so I thought I would leave you with a selection!! I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas and are looking forward to a very happy New Year!!
