So why have her wear it if it isn't a great fit? Because I can't let a hand-knit sweater just go without wearing! Maybe that's crazy. But that's me. I actually think it looks better on her than it does in the picture, but still not great.
To make it wearable, my daughter needed some coordinating clothes. She initially requested a jumper to wear with it, but I didn't find any fabric that I liked for a jumper. Instead, we went with a peasant-style skirt and surplice top.
The skirt is the Can-Can Skirt without the ruffles. You can't see it in the picture, but the very top tier (with elastic) is the same fabric as the bottom tier.
The top is a modification of Kwik Sew 2918. The edges are finished with bias binding.
Truthfully, I like the outfit better without the sweater, but at least there is an option for wearing it.
