The Juniper Cardigan - Sew Along Details (plus see Juniper in action!).

Wednesday, April 5, 2017

Hello everyone,

Well first of all, thank you SO MUCH for the amazing response to Juniper! I've had so many lovely emails and comments over the past week since it was released. I'm not going to lie, it can be a nerve-wracking experience to release something that's a little different to the norm, but the reception has been beyond amazing.

Today I am announcing what we'll be covering in the sew along, and I've recorded a short little introduction video for you. Not only do I get to show you what the pattern looks like on a moving person, but I talk a little more about the pattern itself and introduce you to some of the things we'll be discussing during the sew along.


If you'd like to skip to various topics throughout the video, here are the different start times...

0.01 - Introduction to the Juniper Cardigan
0.55 - The details: saddle shoulder, bodice and sleeve length variations
1.43 - Fabric ideas
4.12 - The intended fit and choosing your size
6.17 - Skill level
7.15 - The Sew Along
8.17 - See both versions of Juniper in action!

Sew Along Topics -
And the part where we sew...
  • Assembling the Neckband
  • Attaching Sleeves — Front & Back
  • Sewing up side seams and attaching the waist/hip band
  • Attaching the neckband
  • Making and attaching sleeve cuffs
  • Attaching grosgrain ribbon - when to do it and how.
  • Adding buttons and buttonholes
  • How to add pockets plus FREE PATTERN PIECES!
  • Juniper Cardigan Round-up!

Juniper posts will go up one to two times a week, hopefully that'll allow me to blog about things that aren't sew along related as well. If there's anything else you'd like to know about, send me an email and I'll try to add it in for you either in the right order or at the end — jen at jenniferlaurenhandmade dot com.

Also, remember to use the hashtag #junipercardigan so I can see all of your amazing creations (and add you to the pattern round up if you'd like to be included!) and tag me on instagram.

Talk next week,

xx

Thank you so much for stopping by to leave me a comment, like most people, I really do appreciate them all!

Due to the large amount of spam I seem to be receiving for some strange reason, comments may take longer to be published than usual. Apologies!
