Straight Stitch Designs: Laurelhurst

on March 17, 2015

I had the opportunity to test another pattern for Straight Stitch Designs! She is quickly becoming one of my favorite designers! I am really starting to love making things for ME. I am so used to sewing for my girls and everyone else, that it feels really nice to sew for myself every now and then. And Kimberly’s designs not only come in my size, but they fit GREAT too!

The Laurelhurst is a beautiful cardigan with a draped front. You could really make this in whatever knit you want, but I found this thinner, light weight knit to work wonderfully. It’s flowy, and just feels amazing on! I found this particular knit at JoAnn’s. It’s from the newer (to my store at least) “Doodle” fabric line.

This pattern was an amazingly quick sew, and one of my favorite things about it is that there’s NO HEMMING!! Let me say that again, you don’t have to hem a thing. Unless, of course, you are crazy and enjoy that sort of thing– then you are more than welcome to. But, I have to be honest (if you couldn’t tell already), I sure do enjoy a little break from it!

To save yourself some ink, the pattern also allows you to adjust the layers so that you only print the size you need. Or, if you wanted to print a couple sizes to grade between the 2, this makes things easy as well!

The pattern is a steal at only $10, and for the next few days you can get it HERE for 20% off (Ends the 20th). Trust me, you want to get your hands on this pattern! It will be a staple in my closet this spring, that’s for sure!
