Mixing and Matching with Butterick 5101

I am not big on wearing pink, but this dusty rose seemed to speak softly to me.  It was one of those random finds from years ago.  You know those fabrics that have no label, but it feels good to the touch.  It reminds me of crepe, but it has a smoother texture.  And like I said, the color was whispering sweet nothings into my ear in hopes that I would take it home.  And I did.

Cocoon Cardigan from Patterns 4 Pirates (P4P)

In the south, when the calendar says October, that means we have absolutely no idea what to wear.  The transition period between summer and winter clothes involves several months of having ALL of your clothes easily accessible.  You can wear a tank top, capris and sandals on Monday but be in a hoodie, jeans and boots on Tuesday.  

Layering is fundamental during these times and a cardigan is always an excellent choice.
