Knockoff cardigan

I really haven't sewn in the past few days, since I finished the cotton skirt.  The sleep deprivation is getting to me.  :-)  

I do have a little something to show, although it's not really new.  Here's the final photo of the "sweater" I first mentioned here.  I'm really happy with how this turned out.  The only thing I may go back and change is to make the sleeves a little shorter and snugger on my arms.  They look a bit dowdy in this photo.   Any thoughts?
I just have to put the zipper in the side of this top so I can show that and review the pattern.  Every morning, I think I'll get it done that day, but it just doesn't happen.  :-)

I also have a purchased knit top that I love that has a stain, so I'm going to cut that apart and try to copy it.  That is, if I can find it... Not sure where I put it.  I probably put it in a special place so I wouldn't lose it...

Cute top! I love that little ruffle down the front. I think you are right about the sleeves - maybe go a bit shorter.
