Friday I knitted a little Kimono cardigan hoping that it would be suitable for Kaya to wear over her long sleeve dress on those cooler days. The pattern had long sleeves so I thought it would be perfect. However, while knitting I was a bit concerned that the sleeves weren't going to be long enough, despite following the pattern and the rest of the pattern knitting up okay size wise. I was right. The sleeves definitely are not long! The cardigan wasn't at all suitable for Kaya to wear over her dress so I thought I would see how it looked on Saige as she still has her summer dress on.
It fits fine over this, but as you can see the sleeves are a long way short of being long! I may try again adding more stitches for the sleeves...or I may try another pattern. I haven't decided yet.
Today I did some sewing. I have actually cut out five dresses I think it is, to make, but made this first one for Peggy sue
She is waving hello.
I do love this style of dress on her, it fits so well and can also be worn by Sasha which is a bonus.
Peggy Sue has borrowed Marcia's beret which I think looks very sweet on her.
