The letter “K” really filled a whole in my daughter’s wardrobe. She only wears dresses and skirts, but it is cold and dark so much of the time here in Seattle (hence the name of this blog) so she needs another layer. Well, sweatshirts are not acceptable to her fancy-style tastes. I have bought them, and she has poo-poo’d them. But cardigans are just fancy enough. Phew!
I really enjoyed Peek-a-boo pattern shop’s V-neck Cardigan. I like how they print each size line in a different color! The instructions are clear and easy to follow, too. And the size range is awesome! I’ll be able to use this pattern for both my girls for years to come. Quite a bargain!
This first one in maroon is pretty basic, but it will really match quite a few things in her closet, and at least it has pink buttons. But the black and white one I love! I saw a cardigan in the same print at a little boutique in women’s sizes, so it was easy to imagine it in a size 10. But the trim I FOUND in my scrap bin and it ended up being perfect!
Sometimes I berate myself for waffling and going through my stash over and over again to see all the possibilities when I really should just get down to sewing. But this time it really paid off! I had totally forgot about that little knit piece I made a scarf out of years ago. Yay!
My alphabet sewing has been spotty, but I am happy to report I am back in business and have a plan for the next few letters. Thanks so much to No Big Dill for the link ups!
