Style Sew Me | Madison Cardigan -- Erica Bunker DIY Style!
I love a great topper... something I can just throw on over everything from activewear when I'm leaving the gym to a gorgeous sexy dress for date night. Last year, it was my velvet kimono. This year it's Style Sew Me Madison Cardigan.

When Eryn offered to send me her latest pattern, I jumped at the chance to add this to my wardrobe. I don't currently have any cute knit cardigans and I love the lines of this one.

I cut the size large, the 12-14. Eryn is tall like I am, so I figured the drafting would be nice and "tall girl friendly" and I was right.

The print is so gorgeous that you can't see the beautiful seaming detail. This cardigan has princess seaming in the back. Which creates a beautiful slenderized waist and not boxy or sackish like a lot of cardigans.

It even has a lovely tailored two-piece sleeve. Y'all know how I feel about those!

The pattern is drafted with 1/2" seam allowances and finished with nice narrow hems.

I'm hoping I can find another lightweight sweater knit that I love, because I feel I need another one of these so that I won't wear this one to death. Because it's definitely leaning that way.

  1. Gorgeous. I'm loving the entire outfit. I'll have to check out this pattern, as I've been wanting to make a cardigan less boxy than what's popular these days, something that accentuates the curves more. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Beautiful sweater, and fabric. I agree the length is tall girl friendly as evident on you. I am tall too, and it is nice not having to add length, and sew directly from the pattern.

  5. Gorgeous Erica! I've never found a pattern for a topper that wasn't boxy or shapeless. This one is great! As a tall gal like you, I'll be looking into this one. Love the shoes too!!
