This time I made view C which has a peplum with a shaped hemline. I used this Deep Red Ponte De Roma purchased from Lincraft.
|I interfaced the front band.|
|Here you can see the loop of the gathering thread that has been pulled to ease in the fullness.|
|This was a very long hemline.|
|Close up of side|
|Close up of peplum skirt.|
|Inside view. Seams were all finished on the overlocker.|
Overall I am very happy with this cardigan so McCall's 6844 has redeemed itself. I can now see why so many have raved about this pattern. Just keep in mind that the sleeves are very fitted and will need to be widened if you intend to wear anything with sleeves under it. I would recommend interfacing the front band and securing it in a few places with a few hand stitches so that it sits properly. And I would also recommend lengthening the peplum on version C so that it sits at a more flattering position.
