The whole outfit is wonderful. Thanks for the heads up on this pattern. I usually love cut in sleeves but something about the pattern photo made me think there was something funny going on with these. They seem a bit too exagerated. Looks like you overcame that beautifully.

Super cute!! Love it with your blue suede bootlets! Odd, I found this pattern to be true to size. I'm wondering if it was the knit that made the big difference. No matter, you made it work beautifully!
