I love it when a plan comes together! I have been drawn towards greens and love Lord of the Rings prints. Plus it kind of makes my hair look super bright!
The cardigan here is made from Leaf Modal Spandex Jersey from Nature’s Fabrics. Disclosure: They sent me this fabric for free, but all opinions are my own.
I wanted to try one of their fabrics that I hadn’t purchased previously, but also one that had a nice drape to it. The modal was recommended to me, and it worked really nicely for the cardigan. There is a lot of fabric in the skirt part and it needs to have a nice fall to it. The modal isn’t super thick, so I wouldn’t say this is a warm fabric. As a layer with my top it worked really well, though. It would be nice for fall and spring cardigans…it was in the 30’s for these pictures, so not quite the right temps!
The cardigan is my own pattern draft that I made last year. I love the skirt part and it is fun to wear!
The top is a modified Sneha from Wardrobe by Me and the leggings are my own draft.
The Lord of the Ring Fabrics are from Affordable Fabrics & More. I purchased these on the pre-order, but I think she will be opening up for retail soon.
If you are looking for some really nice solids, I would recommend Nature’s Fabrics. I love the bamboo spandex jersey, which I used for the rest of the top. It is SUPER comfy to wear, and also has a nice drape. Not quite as good as the modal, but still nice.
Now, I have some strikes in the washing machine and not much time to sew. Everything comes in waves, I swear!
