Crafty sew and sew in Dorset

Welcome to my world of craft!

Make Nine Update

on February 3, 2018

I have already made a change to my make mine list one month in!! I read up on some reviews for the GBSB 3 hour slouch cardigan and they weren’t great.

I understand there are errors on the pattern and instructions which I could probably work around but I bought some beautiful cashmere wool mix at the Dorset meet up and don’t want to risk it.

I had a search on the foldline website and came across a free pattern from Peppermint magazine in the folds slouchy cardigan with great reviews.

This magazine has a few free patterns that look lovely especially the jumpsuit.

I have already made 3 of my nine patterns; Carolyn pyjamas, Jenna cardigan and Nettie bodysuit.

I need to blog about all of these but I’m aiming to make a second pair of pyjamas so will probably wait to see these before blogging.

I’m trying to pace my sewing this year (not very well looking back over January 🤦🏼‍♀️) so planned to make the Ogden Cami and Copen dress this month; along with a bigger project to make a Sew over it Lola coat.

  1. Love all your makes but especially your Jenna cardi! It’s gorgeous. I have this pattern but have yet to make it up and I’ve been missing my cotton cardigans 🙂

    Wow you have been busy! All great makes! Interesting to hear about the 3 hour cardi. I’ve made this and I can’t say I remember there being any problems with the pattern or the instructions. I made it a good year and a half ago so my memory’s a bit hazy! The only problem is that I catch myself on every door handle going as I walk past! Maybe worth doing in some cheaper knit fabric at some point.
