Flower Power – sneak previews

Arianna – two-way floral lace cardigan

After designing Angela for my daughter, I wanted a similar cardigan (but with floral details) that is easy to throw on in a rush for the morning or going out.  Arianna sure does the job for me!
In drapey kimono style and with elbow length sleeves , Arianna is full of flower power – dainty cheery blooms brimming all over, plus a beautiful floral lace yoke on the back.
It can also be worn “upside down” (as shown in photo below on the right) with extra fabric around the neck for additional warmth and coziness.

Also, thanks to Mr Antonio Gonzalez-Arnao’s generous support, the beautiful Malabrigo Sock yarn used for this cardigan has made my project a wonderful experience.

Julia – floral lace tunic

I love the floral stitch pattern I specifically designed for Arianna so much that I have restyled it into a more open lacework for a spring/summer garment. Julia is the end result – a chic feminine A-line tunic with moderate hi-lo hem and yoke, made with breezy cool linen. I’m so ready to say goodbye to the Winter with all this blooming flower power!
