The past week has flown by, and it’s already the last full day of the Sew Fab ePattern Sale (affiliate link)! I’m excited that so many of you have already taken advantage of this amazing deal – 26 sewing patterns for only $29.95 – and I can’t wait to start seeing all the projects you make using your new patterns! The sale officially ends tomorrow morning at 8am EST, which if you’re like me, means you’ll still be in bed when it ends :).

I couldn’t resist sneaking one more project in before the sale is over, so today I’m sharing the Bimaa Sweater that I made for Lola. You can also check out the Skinny Cords and Greenpoint Cardigan that I made and posted about last week. There are so many other patterns still on my list to make, and you can see the full list of patterns included and purchase the bundle here! Oh, and while you’re there, don’t forget to enter the giveaway! There are some great gift certificates up for grabs to online fabric shops!

There have been so many cute versions posted online lately, and I couldn’t resist the cowl neck option. I originally planned to add a hood instead, but something about a big ol’ cowl on a little toddler is just too cute, isn’t it?!

I used yet another one of my Fabric Weekend purchases, a thick 4 way knit that I got for $2/pound at Michael Levine. It’s nice and warm without being bulky, which is perfect for this pattern.

I love the fit of this sweater – it’s a slim fit, which I might have added to even more as I used a slightly larger seam allowance with my serger than I should have.

Sarah did a fantastic job writing this pattern. The pieces printed and came together beautifully, and her directions were very clear and concise, which I always appreciate. I told Wyatt I was going to try and sew the whole sweater in 30 minutes (after it was all cut out), and I almost made it! He gave me a 5 minute bonus at the end, which was just enough time to finish up. So technically it took me 35 minutes of actual sewing time :).

I will definitely be making more for Lola to wear this Fall and Winter, and can’t wait to try the hood option as well. Do you think she likes it? It’s nice having older brothers to keep her entertained during photoshoots.

And that’s a wrap for today! Go HERE (affiliate link) to get your Sew Fab Bundle, and start making some Bimaas!

    1. Thanks Andrea! I feel like I have so much to learn when it comes to little girls still, but it’s fun to get to dress her up – much more fun than dressing myself :).

  2. Kiersten was with me when I opened up to your page and saw this. She said “that’s my friend!” Made me sad we’ll be so far away again. Lola is still as cute as ever!

  3. Oh those pictures of Lola are just cute! Love the outfit! I have all boys! :( Well the sad face is no girls but love my boys! Looks like there is a model in the making – Lola has some cute poses.

    1. Haha, thanks Joanie! I had two boys before Lola, so it still feels weird to me that I actually have a girl! So fun though!
