Cardigans are one of the best accessories that you can add to your wardrobe. Never out of style, this is where "function" meets "fashion" head-on! This draped front cardigan, with a ruched back neckline, has flattering lines intended to make a woman with real curves look slim and stylish - whether you wear it dressy or toss it on over jeans. For winter, make it from a cozy sweater or double knit. For summer, choose a lightweight drapey rayon or slinky knit. Pair it with #105 The Perfect Tank Top or the sleeveless top from #108 The Versatile Twin Set! Pamela's Patterns are designed with the most common fit alterations built right in - high round back, forward shoulder, full hips and tummy, and a seperate pattern for a full bustline. They even give you an "essence of waist"! The cardigan is quick and easy to make and include many sewing/fitting tips.
