Another Eleanor Cardigan is in the books err…closet for me! I am getting some good use out of this pattern. I think this is number 5 for me. I made the mid-thigh length, but didn’t adjust for height so it falls a little lower. This pattern comes in 3 different lengths. Mid-thigh, knee and duster length are all included options. There are also multiple sleeve lengths, a pocket option, and the option of adding a hood.

I used this wonderfully soft Hacci sweater knit to make this Eleanor cardigan. This fabric is available from Stitchin’ Pretties. I love the pink and black combo and the fact that is it plaid is super cool! Here is the link to pick up some Gina for yourself!   If you don’t love pink and black plaid, there are 13 other Hacci sweater knits at Stitchin’ Pretties. Literally, something for everyone! I used some leftover black Liverpool scraps to line my hood and make the band.

This pattern sewed up quickly using my serger for the entire project up to the point of hemming.
I used a simple zig zag stitch to hem the sleeves and bottom. I used the 4x for the bust and graded to a 5x. I also used the 5x for the sleeves so I didn’t have to adjust the sleeves to fit my bicep. That is a bonus in my book! I choose to use the looser fitting sleeve option of the pattern as well.
I paired my new Hacci Eleanor with the 5oo4 Virginia Tank. I used double brushed poly for that tank. I have shown so many versions of the Virginia Tank on my blog. It is my favorite!!Again here are all the options for Virginia. 🙂

  • Tank top has two neckline options in the front and two neckline options in the back

I am a single dog mom of two and we happily reside in a small house in Ohio. We spend our days playing fetch, digging holes in the garden, and sewing, lots of sewing. We have high hopes of moving to the mountains someday. The dogs don’t really know that yet, but they will understand. I shamelessly hoard fabric and feel slightly sorry for whoever has to sort my stash when I am gone. I am employed full time in a industry that requires little of my creativity, but basically lets me wear whatever I want. So it works out. I can usually be found behind one of my sewing machine avoiding human contact. I test a lot of clothing patterns and therefore always have a new outfit to share. You have most likely found my blog through some sort of sewing outlet and will quickly realize that I am sewing for a plus size body. For reference, I am 5'1 and wear a range from a 2-5x. Sizes change with every designer and you can't trust ready to wear sizing when you are making your own clothing. Your tape measure will become one of your most used tools and if you misplace them like I do, you should pick up several. I will be sharing the good, the bad, and the A-MA-ZING with you… So stay tuned. I will also try to teach you a few of my tricks along the way. People always tells me they want to learn how to sew. My best advice is you have to start. Just do it! You are going to mess up, you will break needles, you will ruin the pretty fabric, you will stab your fingers, but you will learn. You will make something and you will wear it. Someone will say, “I like your shirt.” and you will smile and say, “Thanks, I made it.” You will race home and make something else. Pretty soon you have made more good things than bad and you will feel proud of yourself and you should. I will be proud of you too. :) Ok, that is enough rambling, I have sewing to do. :) SequoiaLynn
