It can get very chilly in New England so during the cooler months I pretty much live in sweaters. Regiane was wonderful to work with. We exchanged a few emails and discussed what size to make, the design, and materials. The sweater is made from 100% acrylic which makes it very easy to wash. I love my wool sweaters but they can be harder to care for.
The sweater was packaged very neatly in this little box. Look how sweet is is! Not sure what I will use it for but I had to save the box.
Along with the sweater Regiane included two little cards with information on how to wash and care for the sweater. She cautions against wearing rings or other sharp objects when putting the sweater on. That's because the red and green threads connecting the cherries on the inside could catch and snag. A good piece of advice!

I actually wore the sweater a couple times before I finally had a chance to get some pictures wearing it. (Thank you Cori!) Because the sweater is on the short side I paired it with my 1970s U.S. Navy surplus denim pants that have a high waist. Actually the pants sit at the natural waist. I need more pants like these. (I realize now, looking back at my pictures and Jessica's that we styled the sweater pretty much the same way. My apologies for being a copy cat! :) )
Oh, and this is pretty much what my hair looks like on a normal, non vintage day. It's straight and boring.
