*happy dance* My newest pattern is now available in the shop for instant download! It’s called The Draped Cardigan and is for girls sizes 18 months – 14.
I cannot believe how long it has taken me to get this done (these pictures are from November!). I’m glad that I did finish though. It had been such a long time since I created one, I felt a little intimidated to jump back into it but I feel I’m back into the swing of things now and plan on working on another two patterns for this summer.
The pattern is designed to be made using knits and fleece fabrics.
That means extra comfy! You can make it warmer with using the fleece fabric or a lightweight knit would be perfect for the upcoming spring season.
There are quite a few ways to style it. I share how I used sew on snaps to create a closure. Further down you can see where one of my pattern testers made a belt for it. I also thought on an older child, it would look pretty draped over and held in place with a pretty pin. Like below:

We found a good place downtown for pictures. Miss E was such a mess trying to get photos of. She was so excited to be able to have such freedom to run around in a parking lot. Good thing my husband was there to help!
Miss J just wanted to explore as well. That makes it fun though. Catching them in their element.
Check out these three sisters below!!!!! Their mom, Lindsey Jones, made for for each of them.
Aren’t they just the cutest?!?!? So precious. There is just something so special about sisters. Especially when wearing super cute cardigans their mom made 😉
I also had the pleasure of having Beth, of From the Hive, to help again. She made this really cute cardigan for her daughter. Do you remember her from other patterns???? She’s getting so big! I really like how Beth made the sleeves shorter and added a belt. Great ideas girl! (PS….Beth entered the pattern making world too! You can see her patterns here)
You can find more information in the patterns listing here if you like. I would like to give away three patterns too. Just leave a comment and make sure there is a way I can contact you in case you win. I’ll randomly pick three winners next week!
