M6844 | Peplum Cardigan

I am SUPER excited about this sewing creation!!!! When I first saw the pattern I was slightly intimidated about trying it out. Contrary to popular belief, when a patterns says "Easy", it doesn't always mean "EASY"...LOL Any who! To minimize the anxiety of wasting money, I used inexpensive fabric. I was able to finish with only a few stumbles and the results came out flawless.....as long as you don't look at the finished edges on the inside. Who ever is reading this, thank YOU for taking the time and I hope it has inspired you to challenge your sewing hand. The pattern review is listed below. Have fun with your style and stay beautiful!!
