My Winnie Cardigan is named for Lake Winnipesaukee, a place I adore. These are the colors of the water, sky and shoreline.
The yoke and trim are worked in multi-color variegated yarn, often challenging to work with.
I will write a pattern using this stitch technique some day, but not exactly this cut or placement.
The skirt is a simple self drafted side zip denim number, pattern help from Cal Patch's book Design-it-Yourself Clothes.
This shirt is freshly minted, a hybrid of my favorite raglan pattern and a smock. I removed my raglan's bust darts and transferred the fullness to the gathered seam.
It has a yoke that could feature a favorite fat quarter or vintage fabric, or some embroidery, sashiko, trim, silkscreened print ...
There are darts at the shoulder for a proper fit.
And the back is very plain, with shaped sides for a curved silhouette.
The hem dips in the back for proper coverage.
And the fullness at the front hem is less than my other smocks. I am so pleased with this cut, and I will certainly be taking advantage of that little yoke soon.
