This girl loves her Bimaa Sweaters. Two years ago I made her a handful of sweaters and dresses from the Bimaa Sweater Pattern. Last year, she got a couple new ones that she adored (she even wore an old one for school pics this year).
So it was about time she got a couple new ones for this year.
The first version I made with a thicker sweater knit I picked up in LA. I lengthened it about 8 inches and made the band 9 inches wide (folded in half it’s about 4 inches). Easy modification for a super cute sweater dress.
It is super cozy and casual enough that she’ll wear it to school.
In my last post I professed my love for this Robert Kaufman Mammoth Flannel from Raspberry Creek Fabrics. I had just enough left for the cowl on this sweatshirt.
The pattern is written for knits and I crossed my fingers she would still be able to get it over her head without any stretch. I didn’t modify the cowl at all using the woven and took a deep breath as she tried it on. She has a tiny head so it was no problem! Good thing because I love, love this top!
The top is made from my favorite charcoal french terry. This sweatshirt is so darling and warm! Perfect combination!
