Waterfall Cardigan

Since it usually rains at the end of the year, especially during Christmas season, I'd planned to make an oversize cardigan. Waterfall cardigan seems to be a great idea since it falls on the waist and ends at the hips, perfect for petite size like me.
I chose lycra since it's a bit heavier than jersey. Then I made the sleeve slightly longer too, which can be pulled higher for a fitted sleeve.
I wore it on Christmas eve, together with the wrap peplum top that I made. Since I have less than a metre of fabric left, I made a shorter T-shirt / crop top out of it.

Sewing Summary :
Pattern: I drafted my own pattern.
Fabric: From my fabric stash, 2 metres of pink lycra.
Notions: Threads.
Alterations: Fitted sleeve style and shortening the shoulder.
Difficulty: Easy.
Make another one: Sure! Next time I'll make it in a different color.
Notes: No hemming needed since knit fabric won't fray.
