Another Cocoon

Jalie 3353 might be my new favorite pattern. But before I get to the pattern, let me describe my new favorite fabric store: Fabricline.com. I think I originally heard about this store through a Facebook group. After stalking their website for a few weeks, I decided to pull the trigger and order some denim colored wool blend sweaterknit with a fleece backing. Since I ordered the full bolt (8 yards), I was able to get each yard for half price!!!! I love half price!!! Shipping was super reasonable and the fabric made it from Oregon to Boonetowne in no time at all. Love this company and love this fabric. You’re probably saying it’s a good thing that you love the fabric cuz you’ve got 8 yards. Well, you’re right, but since I made the cocoon today, I’ve actually only got 5.5 yards left!

So I increased the length on the cocoon again. This time I added 10 inches to the length. I also cut size CC because my fabric was super-bulky with no stretch and because the I was concerned about the sleeves being too tight. In hindsight, I really did not need to go up so many sizes–I ended up taking the sides in and taking the back in by adding a back seam–but my sleeves were not too tight, so I guess it’s a win. I made the neck band just skosh wider because the fabric was so bulky. I also added cuffs. Both the neck band and cuffs were 2 inches wide after folding.
