It's time for another Pattern Parcel! If you don't know what that is, you can check out this post. Or this one.
I made the Julia Cardigan. It's a fairly simple and quick sew. The instructions are super detailed, so I found myself scrolling a lot, but it would probably be a good one for beginners. It definitely holds your hand through the construction process.
I made mine with a lightweight, striped sweater knit that I've had forever. It was almost enough. I wanted this to be a long sleeved sweater. I barely squeezed out half sleeves. But I ended up really liking it that way.
It's super cozy and comfortable. And I can wear it with a loose-fitting shirt, to hide that mommy tummy. Sort of.
I felt like it needed a necklace, but I didn't have one that matched. Okay, really, I rarely do, because I have so few necklaces. But this shirt I'm wearing with it has some pleat details at the neckline, so it was perfect. I also wore a pair of green flats that I got on clearance for $1 (yes, I know, I love bargains).
I love this outfit. It makes me feel put together, which is saying something, since right now, most of my clothes don't fit very well.
