A quick weekend project--McCalls 5241
I bought this pattern McCalls 5241 awhile back during one of Hancock's $0.99 (or $1.99) pattern sales. I've been wanting one of these cardigan wraps for about a year but I wanted to make one---not buy one. I am in the middle of making my first item for Spring and hit a standstill until I can get some notions I need, so I decided to make this. The description says it is a 1 hour project---I think it took me that long to get the sleeves in--but it is quick. I made View B.
The fabric I used is a cotton tube knit in heather gray from Vogue Fabrics:
Here it is on Lady Burgundy, my dress form:
