Hi Lovely Followers, hope you all are safe and healthy. This month’s sewing pattern is my 9th pattern and is a long cardigan/vest that can be made of fabric for cold days or an ITY fabric for next year summer. The long cardigan can be made with a bow especially for color blocking or without a bow using a simple button at the waist. I hope you like it and hope to see pictures of you!
