In looking through my fabrics for something to use for the vintage McCall’s dress, I came across the last piece of the heavy cotton jersey knit from Fabric.com. This fabric did so well on the coverstitch that I was eager to sew with it again.
For my twinset, I chose the tank from Ottobre Woman 2/2007. I cut a size 50 and didn’t bother to remove the seam allowance at the neck edge.
Clear elastic was sewn into the shoulder seams of both the tank and the cardigan. It wouldn’t hurt to sew it into the band seam on the next cardigan.
I love this twin set and the fact that it went together so quickly. I especially liked that no buttonholes were necessary!
The vintage McCall’s dress has a long-sleeved version that isn’t shown on the envelope. Hmmm….that sounds better for Fall/Winter, don’t you think?
