This month over at Project Run and Play the challenge of the month was this adorable
When I saw this pattern I immediately knew I wanted to make a lightweight jacket or cardigan, and this is why.
There is this gorgeous little keyhole in the back.
I just thought it would be beyond divine to have the dress fabric show through the keyhole of the jacket, which coincidentally is held together only by the knots.
Plus, even though it's spring it's never warm enough to go without a cardigan on Easter Sunday.
I wanted this to be her Easter dress, so I just had to make it.
This gave me the perfect opportunity to make her that ruffle bustle dress I've been wanting to make her too. I also wanted to make an open backed jacket for it when I got around to making her a ruffle bustle dress. I got to do both in this project, and we both love how it turned out.
I used the same pattern for the cardigan, but used a new tutorial for drafting my sleeve pattern.
I thought about cutting the jacket to be the length of the dress, but she likes the way it looks with her cowgirl boots and jeans too, so I left it this length.
Here is the dress without the cardigan.
Now Carolina wants me to make her one. Don't know if I'll have time. We'll find out.
