Cardigan take 2

Hello everybody,
Here is the second take of this pattern.Also this time did go so easy, actually even easier than the first time ( http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/lace-cardigan-032013-107a) , now I could make the buttonholes with the sewing machine .
I must say that the most part of this project is sewn with the overlocker and what is done on the sewing machine i did it using an walking foot, and i find that this foot works great with the knits on my machine.
For the fun a little bling in the buttons:).
I love this cardigan, it is easy to wear, in this knit is also warm.
Thank you for reading.

    Great cardi, and so well made! I also heard about using a walking foot when sewing knits with a sewing machine, but never tried it before, so thanks for sharing your experience!

      Thank you. I really like this foot. A short time ago I made a little coat for my doughter and by the first stich I saw that I ended up with uneven pieces ,but with the walking foot did work perfect, also with some stretch pants, the same. So give it a try, it may make also your “sewing life” easier :).

    Suit you, well done!

    Actually I am working on this project now, and the hard part for me was the buttonholes.I will upload my version soon.

    Great job :)
