The holiday proof Julia Cardigan, (a Mouse House Creations pattern / Go to Patterns)

It's almost December and I already got some holiday proof sewing to show you. I made a Julia Cardigan with office Christmas parties and festive family visits in mind. The Julia Cardigan is a design by Mouse House Creations and available over at Go To Patterns (affiliate links).

Actually this was really easy, all I did was make the Julia cardigan in a black jersey. That's all! No alterations, just following the pattern and tutorial as is. Matched with a black skirt and tee this feels quite festive to me. And after the holidays I'll just throw in somes jeans and have the perfect day to day outfit.

I made a size M with 3/4 sleeves and a no-hemming collar. Making this collar meant I had to cut the collar twice. I hesitated a little because of all the extra fabric I needed for this option but I'm really glad I did. It resulted in a very neat finish and also added some weight to the collar for a good drape.

  1. It looks really chic and elegant -- perfect for the holiday season! And you can never go wrong with black, I say! That reminds me, I need to make this cardi, too. ;)

    1. The length is great, I didn't need to add any this time.
