My sewing motto is easy & simple and Mccalls 7254 fit the bill. M7254 is a misses' cardigan that is close fitting and unlined, self-lined extended collar and peplum.
The pattern offers four versions, and I worked up Version B with the sleeveless and smaller extended collar. After tissue fitting, worked it straight out of the envelope. The instructions appeared clear and honestly, briefly browsed them and only referred to it when it was time to apply the extended collar.
For my garment I used a beige modal jersey knit, which off the bat was too light, and decided to line the bodice with a beefier knit. The seams were serged and once the lining was in I attached the extended collar and peplum and finished off the bodice seams with topstitching.
Cardigan that is close fitting and unlined, with self-lined extended collar & peplum and sleeve option.
Fabric for this version is a printed ITY knit from Chic' Fabrics and black liquid faux leather for the sleeves which I purchased from Spandex House. Again, being that I was using a lightweight knit, lined the bodice with a knit. As with the first one, the seams were serged and once the lining was in I attached the extended collar and peplum.
