I excavated a short yard of a heavy striped cotton jersey from the stash heap on Monday, and went for a sleeved cardigan. Some of the stripey madness that ensued was intentional, some a happy accident, some design by necessity.
The Pattern seen in this layout was done on the fly, hacking a deep cuff off the end of the sleeve, and twizzling the peplum pieces round to fit the available fabric.
There’s no seam allowance on the pattern. The back went on straight grain, the front on cross grain, working around the need to have the combined top bodice and sleeve pieces on the bias. The peplum went on the bias out of necessity, top right is the shaped cuff piece on straight grain, the 2 pieces sliced off the 2 sleeve pieces joined so there’s no top seam in it.
This is what the back bodice seam looks like pinned ready to stitch.
The front bodice seam looks like this.
The cuff piece is stitched on after the shoulder seam
The peplum and the cuffs are faced back with a scrap of jersey in a wider stripe. There is a pocket under the peplum at the front each side.
Front is edged with bias strip.
