Time for my first cardigan of the fall season. 5oo4 has just released the Eleanor and I love her so much! I wanted to sew up a second one before the pattern released, but I have been way too busy the last couple weeks. I do, however, have one in the works for next week for a special something. I promise you do not want to miss it! First things first though, let’s talk about this pretty lady!
I love that Eleanor can be made super cozy and comfy or dressed up to be a class lady. She really will meet all your needs. I love the relaxed fit in almost everything I wear but especially cardigans. I want to be able to wear a shirt with sleeves or a tank and still be comfortable. Sometimes, I Just need an extra layer at the office and this cardigan will be perfect for that.
As usual, 5oo4 included a size range from XXS-5X. I am wearing the 4x bust graded to a 5x waist and hips. I love the loose fit styling. This is a mid-length, but there is a shorter and a longer length option. You can choose pockets or not. Now, let’s talk about the sleeves. Long and extra long options so you can choose how slouchy you want yours to be. Mine is a long sleeve which I shortened just after this pic. Just like the length options, you can choose regular or loose fit for the width as well. Maybe you prefer ¾ length sleeves which you hold up with a button or snap cuff. You can choose to add a belt, belt loops or even a hood. Can you see why I love 5oo4? So many options!!
I used a fun striped sweater knit print from Sew Blessed and it sewed up quickly and neatly. I always love when that happens. This pattern is perfect for French Terry, quilted knits or even a Brushed Poly. Just check that your fabric meets the minimal requirements for the needed stretch. So many options depending on what look you want.
I love that this pattern is loaded with options. I love that the size range includes up to a 5x option. I love the quick easy construction with detailed directions to achieve perfect fit and construction. This is a quick sew as there are only 6 pieces needed to achieve the basic garment.
