One down, three to go

One of my goals this year was to buy only fabric I have a plan for (a real plan, not "I bet this would look good as a shirt" - a concrete pattern in mind and just enough fabric to sew exactly this pattern) and so far I've done fairly well. I reduced my stash a lot and keep bringing it down.

So when I bought new fabrics last weekend, my plan was to work on them as fast as I can. I can proudly say I finished the first fabric by now. It was the lacy jersey and I made it into a pretty cardigan:

I used the caridgan pattern from McCall's (M5890). I had to shorten the sleeves a bit and turned the collar under rather than over because the left side of the fabric is not that pretty, but otherwise everything went very well!
