Kids Clothes Week is keeping me super inspired! So last night/this morning I designed and stitched up this little cardigan. I loved the idea of making layers that are easy to put on/take off and so I came up with this pattern for a colorblocked snap up cardigan using a onesie to gauge the measurements.

For the most part it was an easy project—the rib knit gave me a bit of trouble but once I switched to a larger needle it was a breeze. I’m in love with the little details on this one. Plastic snaps are SO easy to put in and are so cute. I also am so glad that I used some turquoise Mettler silk finish thread (my favorite kind!) for the topstitching (even though switching back and forth between threads as I was sewing was a little bit of a pain).
I am having an ultrasound on Friday and I plan to find out if the little one is a boy or a girl. Then I’ll know if I can stitch up some little dresses too!

    Hey Caitlin, Congrats on the baby! I'm so excited for you! I don't see a post yet saying whether you're having a boy or girl yet but when you find out let me know! I have boxes of baby girl stuff that my daughter is quickly growing out of and I'd love to pass it on to you 🙂 I look forward to hearing from you <3
