pattern testing- the full cardigan

I showed just a portion of a picture of Bee in a new item I sewed up the other night.  I can show you the full thing now.  It's trendy and cute and looks great on Bee, who is rather fashion forward all of a sudden. 

I tested this draped cardigan out for my buddy at Happy Together.  She has a giveaway going on right now to win your very own copy.  It ends sometime this week, I don't think she said a day for sure.  If you're too late, it's available in her shop, here.  It's pretty versatile, Bee just likes her clothes fitted at least at the waist. 

The pattern was easy to use, well written, and super well documented with photos along the way.   The pattern has sizes 18 months through size 14.  You could make them for every little girl in the neighborhood.

So, this fabric was from my friend Melissa (she sells adorable kids jewelry and items here at Emmi and Olive).  I grabbed it thinking I'd make a skirt for myself out of it.  The stripe isn't white and it isn't cream. I wasn't sure I'd ever match it with a top.   The reverse of this knit fabric is pretty cool too.

(I did a little something with this old bench we have in the living room.  I'll have to share another day.)
