Chanel cardi...the beginning
I have several patterns that would suit a Chanel style cardigan, Vogue 7975 basic design, McCall's easy 5007 and the one pictured here on the left McCall's Make it Crafty 6041. I'm going to use M6041 but I'm not going to "make it crafty". LOL. The main reason is because they include all the cup sizes with this pattern and I really don't feel like doing a FBA since I wear a 38C. I've decided on view B. I'm going to cut out a 16 graduating to an 18 at the hips. I'll shorten the sleeves from a 3/4 sleeve to a 2/3 sleeve. I'm going to add side slits and possibly lengthen the body of the jacket if I don't think the length is long enough when I make the muslin. I'll also make a possible sloping shoulder adjustment. Age and gravity are catching up with me. We'll see.
