Style #1725      Difficulty: - 2.5 / 5

This is a professionally drafted fashion industry construction pattern, which I have made and graded to industry standard guidelines.

A Construction Sequence is included, and a sew-a-long-video is on my Youtube channel, and embedded on this page to help you sew this garment.


Please purchase a knit fabric - jersey - that has stretch as the garment requires this to fit properly. Medium weights are sugested. The pattern has been made to use ribbing for the cuff version, although if your fabric has a medium stretch you could use self fabric.

Fit Information:

This cardigan is made as a contour fit, Based on a ballet cardi, it has a gently shaped rear hemline, and crossover wrap front. The ties can be worn at the back, side or brought to the front of the garment.

The garment body is top length - see the fit information or refer to the images for details

There is a choice of two sleeve finishes:

  • A standard full lenth straight sleeve ending in a cuff, or
  • A mid length sleeve with flounce. The flounce - trumpet sleeve - starts at the elbow and graduates from higher in the front to wrist length at the back.

The pattern is a multi-size pattern to fit the size range of XXS - 4XL.

Choose your size according to your bust measurement - choose the size that is most close.

Garment pictured is a Medium - it fits a NZ size 12 / US size 8, height 5'6". If you prefer a more tailored look go down a size. It is recommended that you check the size guide and that you sew a test garment first to check for fit.

As a guide I normally wear a NZ12 - US8 - Medium - and I feel this is true to size. Choose your size based on the look you want.. The size guide is within the information sheet included in the downloads when you purchase this pattern - you can see a screenshot of this page in the images here
