Not sure where December went but I finally started and finished my December challenge. McCalls patten 6084. Description: cardigan, with a cascading shawl. Easy, one hour. Humm. Either I'm the slowest sewer in the world, or some speed demon reviewed this pattern. There is at least two yards of hem alone.Let me start from the beginning. I cut it out at one house and started sewing at another. (We have two homes because of my husbands work). Two days ago I started sewing, only one problem, no instructions. With only three pattern pieces, you'd think I'd be able to put this together. Nope. So I drove to the local fabric store, found the pattern and took pictures of the instructions with my iPhone.
When I got home I dove right in. The shoulder/back/collar was different than anything I had done before. Don't even know how to describe it other than "this isn't my favorite pattern."
I ended up doing a French Seam on the collar because just about any way you wear it the seam shows. Also the hem on the bottom and collar/sides show. Like I said, not my favorite pattern.
