I love when I am able to give customers the patterns they have asked for! TDD fans asked for a cover-up for sleeveless dresses, and being unable to decide on just one style to make for you, I made three different looks, all in one pattern. East Coast Cardi, Bolero and Shrug Pattern is a quick-sew pattern for knit fabrics that includes three versatile views – snap- (or button-) front cropped cardi, bolero with or without a front tie, and a shrug with built-in ties.
The cover image features the snap-front cardi view with ruched sleeves, made by testing team member Genevieve O. Do you recognize New York Minute Dress pattern peeking out beneath?
All views have long sleeves with subtle gathers at the shoulder and a hi-low hem that lets her outfit shine in front, and gives coverage in back.
The bolero view can be made with or without the front tie.
The shrug view features built-on ties that knot in front for a casual look that looks as great with dresses or jeans as it does at dance class.
East Coast Cardi, Bolero and Shrug Pattern includes nine sizes: 12-18 months, 18-24 months, 2T, 3T, 4T, 5, 6, 7/8 and 9/10.
Recommended sewing experience with knit fabric: Advanced Beginner or higher.
