I was honored to test one of Vanessa's pattern contirbutions to the new Willow & Co. pattern collection to be released next week. This is the Aster Cardigan and it is adorable! I was asked to do the Size 10 for my big girl. She will be 10 next month! It is really cute and stylish...
These were taken before school yesterday. It was dark and rainy outside so we took our photos in my new basement studio! I can't wait to finally have it organized enough to share some good photos.
Vanessa writes a beautiful and organzied pattern. The pieces all fit together perfectly and even though I am not a big sewer of knits, this came together very nicely! The bands at the sleeve and the nice way the placket and collar are designed make it a project that sewers of many skill levels can handle.
I always struggle with button holes but that is not the fault of the pattern. The fit is nice. In these photos, she was wearing a shirt that was a little bulky, but the cardigan is meant to be fitted so next time we will put it on with a more fitted tee shirt underneath. Next week will be the launch of Willow & Co. so be sure to be ready!
Thanks for letting me test your pattern, Vanessa!
