In yesterday's post, I wrote about Frannie promoting from 8th grade.  It was a special occasion which required a pretty dress.  Rules were for no spaghetti straps, strapless or backless dresses, and no prom gowns or bridesmaid dress attire.  Basically, keep your shoulders covered and don't dress inappropriately, after all, this was a serious ceremony and not a fashion show.  We found a nice dress, although shoulders would be visible, but not too much.  Frannie asked me to make something pretty to put those shoulders at bay.

I made this cardigan one other time (posted about here) and we thought it would be just the right thing, this time in sparkly pink (difficult color for me to photograph, but it did match the flowers in the dress just right).  I used Vanna's Glamour Yarn in Deep Magenta and the pattern Cardigan "Pétales" by Marjoline Petit.  It is available as a free Ravelry download in both French and English.  I used a simple, vintage rhinestone button as a closure.  It goes without saying that it looked very pretty on Frannie - and I'm not just saying that because I'm her mother.  :)

Oh how sweet! I'll bet Frannie looked adorable. It sounds like she goes to a great school too -- I sure wish our school would be stricter about dress codes -- I get tired of seeing girls look like they're wearing their camisole undies!!!
