Pleated Cardigan

On Friday, Taylor had a Nightingale Commitment Ceremony to recognize her entering into the nursing program this year. I woke up that morning and decided that I needed something new to wear for the occasion, so I downloaded Jalie 2619, grabbed some French Terry that I purchased (yes, another floral stripe), and went to work. By the end of the afternoon, I had this pretty cardigan.

Needless to say, this project went together pretty quickly and the fit is beautiful. Unfortunately, the pleating details (around the shoulder to about the waist line) sort of got lost in the fabric’s pattern, but it does shape the cardigan so it’s not a boxy fit. Overall, I love the outcome – I’m sad that I didn’t give this pattern a try sooner!
