I’m still riding the knits wave, and I’m loving it more and more! A noticeable gap in my wardrobe (me-made or bought) is cardigans and jumpers. I’ve been eyeing off Papercut Patterns Coppelia Cardigan and Ensis Tee for ages and then the stars aligned. Papercut Patterns released a PDF version of the Coppelia Cardy, meaning I didn’t have to wait for the posty and the pattern was considerably cheaper! In addition, The Fabric Store had a massive $20 Merino wool sale; I bought 7 metres. I also splurged and bought the Ensis Tee pattern in store. I’ve made up one of each so far, with one more of each version cut and ready to sew.
First up, I made the Coppelia Cardy in a beautiful light weight pink Merino. I graded between the Xs to a Small at the waist. Next time I’ll make a straight small. I adore how this cardy turned out. It’s incredibly warm and comfy and goes perfectly with so many of my fit and flare dresses and high waisted skirts.
I made the Ensis Tee in slightly heavier weight ribbed Grey and purple Merino. I cut a straight XS for Ensis. The fit is spot on. I really like how Ensis turned out. It’s a bit slouchier then I expected but I dont mind at all.
I thought I’d post Ensis and Coppelia together as I have nothing more to say other than that I freakin’ love how both turned out and I can’t wait to sew more. I can’t recommend Pappercut Patterns enough. For a few more details and some pics check out my blog
