I’m back today with one of my favorite makes so far this year- This beautiful Coppelia Cardi in this lovely seafoam color. I went with this super soft Lady McElroy tencel Modal Knit in Duck Egg thinking it would be a much darker shade of green-but I love this color so much more!
This fabric is so soft and it’s holding up really well. It’s buttery soft with a nice hand and drape. I need more of these knits in my life!
This piece is going to be my go-to coverup for travel. I love the shape and color and it works with just about everything in my wardrobe this summer. I’m wearing it here with my heavily modified Tula Pants, also from Papercut patterns and a Zoey tank top in Pecan.
I love the wrap ballerina shape and the raglan sleeve. This fits me to a T and is so comfy! I like the nice deep cuff and tie belt. Perfect for Florida summers where you always need to coverup indoors because the AC is so cold!
All the Details:
This classic ballet style wrap cardi features a raglan sleeve, and a fully adjustable tie through waist.
With two variations available, you can make it full length with the wrap attached at the side seam and a band at the bottom, or cropped with a long waist tie to wrap around and tie in a bow. Great for summer in a light drapey knit or cosy in a merino jersey for winter.
Sizes: 1 – 8 (NZ & UK Size 6 – 20)

This pattern is well drafted and the instructions are simple and clear to follow. I really like the clean finish you get at the hem. I’m really impressed with the 2 patterns I’ve made from this company. I usually draft the majority of my patterns but it’s nice to sometimes speed up my process and make someone else’s design.
I do want to make another for fall. I have a nice copper tencel knit that I think will be perfect.
Back to my Summer Sewing Plans! You can see this wrap top on my YouTube channel if you’re interested- it’s featured in my May Makes video. I’ll probably show it off in my next video too- 5 Ways to Add Color to Your Wardrobe. So stay tuned for that.
Until next time- Happy Sewing!
