Made by a Fabricista: Burnout Cardigan

When selecting fabric for the website, I have to think about what a customer might do with it. Sounds easy right? Not always. I might really like a print, but the quality of the fabric might not be there. Or the fabric feels beautiful, but the mix of colors are very...blah! I also know that sometimes a fabric can be really cool but tricky to sell unless you give the customer an idea on how to use it. 

So I bring to your attention, Burnout Knit with Graffiti Print (#BCD4774). SOLD OUT

I'm addicted to the drapey-front cardigans that are very trendy right now. They are so comfortable and  versatile. The pattern I used is the Abby Cardi from StyleARC.com. This is something else I'm addicted to! (We will talk about this in another blog post!) The pattern is super easy. It only took 2 hours from cutting to finishing. 




There are other burnout stripe knits on our website. See all Burnout Knits

Here are some of my favorites:  
Left: BDB4776 - Burnout Knit Multi-dot on Stripe -Black/ Royal/ Mauve/ Off-white
Right: UVB4846-Paint Splatter-look Burnout Knit - Black/ Metallic Watermelon
So what else can you make with these knits? Dresses, skirts, loungewear, tops and more! For some of these options you will have to line the garment, but show off these fun prints in your next project!
