Mirabella beginnings

A great friend and the only reason that I’ve had any courage to branch out into designing, is having  a baby – her first girl.  So to honor her, I’ve designed a sweet little cardi and named it for the sweetness-to-be.  This pic doesn’t show it well, but there are faux seams to add a “denim jacket” looking detail.

The edgings are worked in Linen st. and I’ve used Ty-Dy.  The only seams are grafted (upper fronts to lower fronts) and under the arms.  I’m working the buttonhole and button bands in this pic.  However, the color didn’t seem girly enough to me soooo…here it is in Rowan Purelife Revive.  I’m working the lower body in this pic, and will post more when it is complete.
