I will be the first to admit that I have a children's pattern buying problem. I have purchased way more patterns than I will ever have time to sew, and so I always hesitate to buy another one. But with a pattern like the Aster Cardigan by Willow & Co, there is no guilt involved-- it is a pattern that is cute AND practical and I know it will be made and worn often.
The pattern is a simple cardigan with 3/4 length sleeves and a Peter Pan collar-- great for the cool weather that lies ahead here in the midwest. The peplum bottom, sleeve button tabs, and heart applique were my own additions. This is an easy pattern to modify or embellish, so there are many possibilities to make it your own style. And I always love patterns that allow me to highlight a little bit of fun printed fabric!
Here is a view of the back with the peplum bottom:
And finally, because my daughter is three, we ended up with a number of pictures like these!
