Saucy Skirt and Flyaway Ruffle Cardi--a Pattern Test

When I got to test April's newest patterns from Dandelions 'n Dungarees, I was rather excited.
They fit perfectly with my goal of sewing all my kids some fall/winter Sunday clothes.
I really like how it turned out. Instead of the knit fabric ruffles that were shown in the tutorial, I gave it a try with some ready made eyelet lace that I got from a friend.
The body of the Cardi I made with a nice ponte knit from Girl Charlee (referral link).
It's left over from my husband's Newcastle Cardigan.
The finishing of the neckline looks so professional with some bias tape.
And, I love the look of the one button closure.

For the skirt, I used some of the left over cotton-spandex fabric from my Color Block Dress which is also from Girl Charlee.  
It has options for a single layered skirt, a double layered skirt and a double layered skirt with a super cute tie.
I couldn't resist the tie.

To finish off the look, I whipped up a pair comfy ponte knit version of Go-To Leggings. (affiliate link)

And, a Sunday outfit for my youngest daughter.

All ready for Church.
Hop over and get the bundle for $9 for a limited time.
Or get the skirt or the cardi separately for $5 each.
