Draped Cardigan - Assembly

Draped Cardigan - Assembly

(I suggest that after each piece is sewn together, that a zig zag stitch is used along the edge to reinforce each seam)
1. With right sides facing, sew the top of the front chest pieces together with a straight stitch.
2. Mark the mid point on the back upper back piece at the shoulders, and then line up the seam of the joined front chest pieces with right sides together, and then sew together.
3. Flip the sides of the two front and back pieces together so that right sides are facing, and then sew together.
4. With right sides facing, assemble the bottom portion of the sweater as pictured.
5. Line up the seams and pin together the bottom and top of the sweater together with right sides facing, and then sew together.
6. Mark 2 inches in on each side of the previously sewn seam. Then, with elasticized thread, sew along the seam from each point, making sure the back stitch accordingly. (The of each side should have no elasticized thread sewn into it).
7. Pin on the sleeves starting by first joining the seam on the sleeve and the seam joining the front of the sweater to the back.

Finish all edges to your preference (if you used a nice knit you can leave them raw, zigzag along them, or, as I did to play it safe, do double fold and sew on a hem).

A Japan Air Lines, press photo.

The following press release is glued to the back of the photo: “Exotic and fascinating are the mysterious maiko or apprentice geisha of Japan distinguished by their elaborate kimono, traditionally lacquered jet-black hair and heavy, brocaded long obi (sash) draped down their back. In Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan and home of the most noted geisha schools, the maiko begins her training as a teenager. To become a highly specialized entertainer she learns the art of dancing, make-up and dress, singing, music, flower arranging, tea ceremony and conversation." January 1972.

"Geisha - touch of the ancient." newspaper clipping, Oct 16, 1966.
