DIY RUFFLED LITTLE GIRLS CARDIGANS USING ELLIE AND MAC: SO LOVELY PATTERN

Hey Guys!

I’m a sucker for RUFFLES! When I came across Ellie and Mac So Lovely Cardigan, I had to have it!

It’s only for the little ladies, however I’m tempted to hack a pattern and make one in my size. It’s that cute!

I made both of my girls cardigans, using a previously purchased knit (grey flowers) and another knit (unicorns), both from Joanns.

The pattern calls for a 2 way stretch knit. I used a 4 way stretch knit (grey flowers) and 2 way (unicorns). I like the feel and how the ruffles popped a little more with the 4 way stretch fabric.

The 4 way stretch was a little heavier than the 2 way.

This was my first time making a garment using an Ellie and Mac pattern.

It is not a trimless pattern, meaning you have to trim some edges to connect the pattern pieces together.

I only trimmed 2 sides of each piece of paper. The top and the left side. After that the pattern came together quickly.

The pattern has 3 sleeve options; long sleeves, 3/4 sleeves and sleeveless.

I made the long sleeves (grey flowers) and 3/4 sleeves (unicorn).

The sizes are pretty close to ready to wear sizes.

The pattern comes with sizes 6 months to 10 years.

I cut sizes 2t and 6.

My 2 year old wears a 3-4t rtw. My 4 year old wears a size 6 in rtw.

Fabric: Both from Joanns Fabric

Cotton Interlock (Unicorn) – 2 way stretch

Cotton, Polyester, Spandex (Grey Flowers) – 4 way stretch

The instructions and pictures were easy to follow.

Very easy and fast garment to make.

Even though the constitution is simple, you get a lot of bang with this adorble cardigan.

Happy Creating!
