I’m back today to share with you yet another fantastic pattern that is part of One Thimble Issue 15 #affiliate. The #116 V Neck Cardigan is designed by Thread Faction Studio. It is a super quick sew, suitable for even beginner sewists. While the pattern does call for buttons and buttonholes (really not that hard, I promise!), I made it an even faster sew by using open prong snaps.
The size range for this pattern is 2-10. My daughter measures a size 5 for her chest and a 7 for height, so I blended those sizes and the resulting fit is excellent. The main pink fabric is a lightweight cotton lycra. I upcycled an old striped navy and white tee for the sleeve and hem bands, and used a scrap of navy cotton lycra for the neck and front binding.
This cardigan makes a perfect layering piece for fall, or a lightweight summer jacket for those cooler evenings. I paired the cardigan with my Dax Trousers and the Military Messenger Bag by FABulous Home Sewn, 2 other patterns also found in this issue of One Thimble.
