KS 2759 seond and third time around

This is the third time I have made the cami from this pattern. I added a little extra to the side seam with this one due to the stretch of the knit just being at 35% as required. This is my second time using this to make the cardigan.

I adjusted the cardigan this time by doing a small FBA as the first one I made fits okay but a little snug. I like the fit of this cardigan. Thought next time I might add a little to the upper back area as it feels a little snug.
This was great knit to sew with. ( You were right, Carolyn). I realized that Carolyn had sewn this knit fabric before. I acquired this from Fabric.com along with another knit piece that I have yet to make up.
My fold over elastic arrived yesterday. Unfortunately the pale yellow I ordered was not pale enough. I decided to try using bias tape to finish the front and back neck area of the cardigan. I like the results and it helps stabilize the front with out having to cut a front and back neck facing. I also used the bias tape for the cami neckline as well.
I took some shots of me wearing both. I cropped out as much of me as possible as I still had on my pj bottoms and no make-up
