julia cardigan

Another sewing project completed! This is the Julia Cardigan by Mouse House Creations in a light gray Robert Kaufman laguna cotton jersey. I made the doubled-over version of the collar and finished the seams with my serger after basting with a zig-zag stitch on the sewing machine. Construction was easy, though I did encounter a few learning opportunities. I rethreaded my serger for the first time (which I had been dreading), and it was super easy. I also unpicked a serged seam which was not nearly as time-consuming as I had been lead to believe.

All-in-all, a success! I have already worn this to work several times and will definitely need to make a few more in different colors!
