I got lucky and managed to be able to test the Petite Sweater from Lil Luxe Collection! It's a brand new release that comes with a leotard and leggings as part of the Centre Stage Collection and I'm defo looking forward to being able to sew the whole lot up together!

Eddie ADORES cropped tops, and she adores thumbholes even more, so this was a winning combo for her. That adorable peekaboo and crossover back with the cowl neckline was a winning combo for me!

The apricot version was the first test run of the pattern, so there's been a few tweaks to it between that version and the final black and white version I sewed up!

It's actually not a super complicated sew at all, even though it seems like it is! Just take your time reading through the instructions and you'll work it all out! I had the fiddliest time with the thumb holes, so I'll probably do them an alternative way that I'm more used to next time I sew this up!
