Julia Cardigan - first make of 2016

My first make of 2016 was the Julia Cardigan by Mouse House Creations 
This went together so fast & was a much needed quick project to get my sewing mojo going for the year. I used a sweater knit that I had purchased at Michael Levine . I was a nice lightweight washable knit . The colors-black,cream & silver sparkles don't show up in the picture but make this a casual or dressy topper. I have many more plans for this pattern .


  1. such a pretty cardigan. I have been eyeing this pattern for sometime.

  2. Thanks it went together so easily . I did the 3/4 sleeve & did the double facing .

  3. Cute Cute Cute! Do you get the idea that I like it?

  4. This is a great looking cardigan! I need to put it on my to do list! I noticed it called for knits with a good amount of stretch. Does that mean fleece is not an option?

    1. I'm not sure about fleece. You could cut a bigger size & then size down if needed after you baste it together. The band is the part that needs the most stretch as it sort of draws the top together .- good luck & let me know

  5. Thanks Faye !! I really enjoying your feature of showcasing sewing bloggers - I'm learning a lot !!!
