From the moment Shauna of Shwin Designs released her Beautiful Dreamer Cardigan, I knew I had to have it. And I assumed it would become a huge hit. I purchased immediately and got to sew it a few weeks later. I was SO right. I LOVE this cardigan for so many reasons, but the main one is its wearability!
I sewed mine from a knit blend from Art Gallery and love how light weight and cozy it is. The back has a leather accent, that upon first glance looks like a cut out, but is most definitely not (ha!). Honestly, the only slight difficulty I had in sewing this pattern was getting the back leather yoke in place. I had to unstitch it to the knit a few times before I got a pretty near perfect point. The only modification I made was to lengthen the bodice by 2-3″… I like longer cardigans, so I knew the standard length would probably not be long enough for my liking.
It sewed up in a couple of hours, and I really can’t wait to make and wear more!
