With that in mind, I set out to find a light little cardigan for Abner to wear in the early mornings and evenings when she's outside and it's on the cooler side. After an exhaustive search (by which I mean a quick stroll through the kids section at Joe Fresh), I came up short. There was nothing quite like what I wanted.
Remembering a tutorial I read on Angry Chicken last year (side note: my memory astounds me with its selectivity sometimes...this I remember, but I can't tell you what I ate for lunch yesterday) I grabbed one of the only long-sleeve tops on the rack and went home to make my own cardigan. I should point out that I grabbed the size larger than Abner usually wears so that it could easily layer over other clothes.
start with a long-sleeve top
fold in half and cut up the fold
(just the shirt front, don't cut through the back as well!)
It's impossibly cute on Abner and she keeps asking for her cardy whenever we go out so I think she likes it.
