I had a vague idea, including an offwhite IW blouse and a made by me jsk with matching accessoires. So all I needed was a cardigan, since otherwise it would be too cold (the blouse is short-sleeved). So luckily I had some chocolate-coloured rib jersey left over, plus some of the brown lace trim I had used for the jsk.
For the special occasion ( I'm sooo looking forward to the Tea Party!), I coordinated the cardigan with the rest of the outfit (excluding accessories):
I used mother-of-pearl buttons with a golden ornamental frame. I had bought them once in Austria, so I thought, what would be more convenient?
I also really like the shape of the cardigan. I don't know if it's visible (maybe a little), but I included princess seams in the pattern.
Aww, so much pleasant anticipation! (^.^)
