M5978 Purrrrfect Sweater Set

I am not a sweater set kind of girl, but with this print, I'll make an exception.

This pattern is out of print.

Misses Cardigans & Top: Cardigans have three-quarter or full length sleeves and stitched hems; cardigan A has purchased lace trim; cardigan B has jewel stones; cardigan C has pearls; cardigan D has self-fabric appliques; sleeveless top E has narrow hem finishing at neck, armhole and lower edges.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? I think so

Were the instructions easy to follow? I glanced over them. I used quarter inch Steam A Seam around the neckline and armholes of the tank after I serged them. This makes stitching the curves lay flat with curling. I also used half inch SAS  at the hems.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? There is nothing to dislike. Between my machine and serger, this was a quick sew

Fabric Used: A moderately stretchy knit purchased at Joann's a while ago.

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: I did not do any of the lace or gem embellishment and I'm still undecided about the buttons. If you look closely at the tank top, you'll see a bust dart.

Would you sew it again? Not sure. But I do need cardigans in my wardrobe, so I might give this a thought.
