And then it occurred to me that I could use Alabama Studio techniques on a commercial sewing pattern designed for jersey. Simplicity 2206 is a simple kimono-sleeve cardigan with very few pieces. I ran up the seams on the machine, then picked out some to fell by hand with a running stitch.
I just love handwork on jersey. It is such a comfortable way to sew, and so beautiful.
Not sure about the fit through the shoulders for Bella, though. I think maybe a size up next time.
