|Correctly sewn version of Vogue 8819|
|Vogue 8819 with chevron|
After I made the black and white stripe one for our trip I saw my mistake. Yes, the stripes are on the bias but they don't chevron across the cardigan front like I wanted them to. Of course I was in a hurry when I was sewing it and it doesn't scream homemade but I was careful when I cut out the brighter version last week and put arrows all over the pieces and cut them single layered to keep my head clear. I love color, texture and design but times like that you can understand why high school geometry was such a challenge for me.
|Love the back detail|

Oh, yes, I bet you want to see the wonky one from 2013 so here's the post. Wrong version of Vogue 8819 Love the rayon knit since it feels like wearing pajamas but it makes me laugh when I see it. Yes, a little knowledge and experience can be a dangerous thing. I got caught "assuming" and you know how that ends.....
