My friend, Amanda, had a baby many months ago – and it’s finally time to unveil the sweater gift for Calla. As that is the true purpose of this little sweet sweater. It’s an empire-waisted swing jacket with a big collar and cuffs that can be worn up until Miss Calla is a big girl, then flipped down.
And, as you see, it the pulled down cuffs work as an impromptu muff too!
Thank you to Miss E for being the perfect model!
