One Button Cardigan Love!

I’ve mentioned my  penchant for staying warm in the winter and fall seasons, and I can’t resist a good fall floral. When I saw this “Drama Queen” french terry from Sly Fox Fabrics, I knew I had to have it- despite the little voice in my head warning me that sometimes mustard tones don’t look good with my coloring.

Cardigans are totally my jam when it’s cold outside, as I can wear a cami under them for easy temperature control and nursing access.

These two cardigans at Nordstrom were calling my name, but for $58, I decided to re-create the look with two yards of the mustard French Terry and the Greenstyle One Button Cardigan pattern.

The One Button Cardigan pattern sews up pretty fast, and has a nice inside finish, using the burrito technique on the back neck. You do have to be careful to mark your pattern and sew your corners carefully- mine aren’t quite as sharp as I would like, but picking stitches out of french terry is no picnic, so I decided to leave well enough alone (for once!).

I made the smallest size in the “less overlap” option, and I even have about half a yard left over to make something for the princess- so I feel like it’s a win! The sleeve length is just perfect for me- long enough to cover my palms but not too long for doing dishes.

My husband was less than resounding in his enthusiasm about the color on me- but I love it, and I know it will get lots of regular wear this fall. Sometimes these guys don’t know anything about fashion!

You can find the pattern here, and “Drama Queen” baby french terry I used is available here. I also think the brushed aubergine, and posey denim would look gorgeous in this style.

How is your fall sewing coming along? Stay updated on my plans and finished makes on my Instagram and Facebook pages!
