After having success with the StyleARC Fiona and Laura patterns I thought I'd try the Marie Jacket next.
My eyes twitched a bit the first time I read the instructions. I usually sew by looking at diagrams so I couldn't quite figure out what I was meant to do. I searched all the reviews I could find, followed Lara's tips on topstitching, followed each step and just hope it made more sense as I went along and it went together perfectly.
I used some really nice black ponte I found on eBay. It is rather thick so this is definitely more a jacket than a cardigan. The only downside to making this was that my overlocker hated this fabric. I tried different setting and needles, but it just would not sew it so I didn't use it and I didn't finish any of my seams.
