Coppelia by Papercut Patterns

It wasn’t until I watched Rach from Stitched Up on YouTube show off her beautiful pink Coppelia wrap top that I decided I would give this pattern a go.  It has raglan sleeves and a choice of either a cropped ballet style wrap cardigan with ties or or a longer length with the wrap fastened into the side seam.

I made the longer version without the ties out of a grey sweat-shirting fabric bought from eBay. Once the pieces were cut out I did have to lay them out on the floor so I knew which seams went where! Once I got going it came together nicely, I love the wrap look.  I do want to make another in a lighter wool jersey knit.

The instructions are clear, I do try to read through them though before I even start sewing. I can get quite eager to get going and finish what I make, I have made the mistake a few times of not reading the steps properly and going wrong. I hate unpicking and try and avoid it if I can so reading the instructions before I start definitely helps!
