I was so excited to sew up the new Child’s Keeley Cardigan pattern for Rebecca Page last month as a brand ambassador for them. My oldest is in the “pre-teen” stage and getting more difficult to please with handmade clothing. She jumped at the chance to wear this cardigan though!
This pattern comes in a huge size range from newborn up to size 12 which means it will fit all of my kids without buying baby sizing as well! It features 2 lengths (top or midi), 2 sleeves (3/4 or long) and has optional accents such as side vents, pockets and buttons or snaps.
I sewed up the size 11-12 length blended to a 7-8 width for my ten year old. I opted for midi length with long sleeves and we skipped all the extra features this time as we were on a time crunch. Let me tell you it was SO easy and quick, 20 minutes tops from cut to hemming. It was simple to blend sizes and fits her just perfect. I used a sweater knit from Hobby Lobby for this cardigan and have several more planned with pockets and side vents. She loves it and has worn it every time it is fresh out of the dryer! Any pattern that can please a picky pre-teen is a win in my book.
This pattern is on sale for a short time so scoop it up here (and also comes in adult sizes!) and sew up all the cardigans! I’d love to see what you create:)
