I'll try to take better pics later, especially of the little motifs along the bottom, but she doesn't make it easy. Also I need to add the 2 last buttons. I thought I'd like it this way, but it jut stays wide open in the back, and that ain't too good.
The top is actually more fitted at the top, and then there are increases to make it flare a bit. (come on, if you really look hard you can kind-of-see-it in the lat pic..) I really like short sleeve tops for her, I find it more versatile. Otherwise with regular long-sleeve cardis she often gets too hot inside, or gets her hands all tangled-up in the sleeves ect... But I may knit her also a long-sleeve version.
And of course, this top can also be used as a regular cardi. Kind of a "two in one"... ;-)
I'll be writing up a pattern for it soon, and size it up and down, but I think I'm going to try and make the Isabeau handbag and tote first. And I'll be off to get more yarn for those in a minute as soon as prune wakes up from her nap ! Still not sure of the colors I'll choose though...
really looks great
la couleur est tres sympa - moi je laisserai comme cela dans le dos ca donne un petit look sympa, mais j'ai oublié ce que c'etait d'avoir un BB d'1 an (la mienne est une graaaande de presque 3 ans ;o) )
