Ilse’s Ruffled Cardigan
When I saw Ilse Heine wearing this ruffled cardigan, I just had to ask where she got it. And wouldn’t you know, she’d made it on her serger! Look inside and you can see the serged seams. She used Jalie’s Pleated Cardigan pattern (a PatternReview.com Best Pattern of 2010 winner) and the entire garment was serged except for the hem. Ilse says, “The hardest part of this jacket was keeping the ruffles in the right direction when stitching and even that was pretty easy.”
