Vogue 8780 knit cardi pattern review

Vogue 8780 , described as a "fitted, unlined jacket", was indeed unlined, but I certainly would not say this is fitted.  The pattern pieces went together well, the directions easy to follow and it deserves the "very easy" rating is was given by Vogue. The front has a cascading effect while the back has a waistline seam and a full lower back.  A hidden detail is the side inseam pockets. While fabric recommendation are for sherpa fabric , double-sided fleece, or double knit , I choose to use a striped ITY knit purchased during the 2011 Pattern Review Day shopping trip to SR Harris. Sewing of the cardi was completed a few months ago.  However, I though you might enjoy some garment photos framed by white, otherwise known as heavy snowfall and wind.  Yes, it was as cold as it looks so you might want to grab a cup of hot tea or cocoa to warm yourself as you look at the photos.

Our two four-legged babies are enjoying the first major snowfall of the season much more than we are. *******************************************
