The Otium Sweater fits sizes XS-XXXL women and 12M-14 Years in girls. The pattern is available in both EN and NL languages, There is a separate download for each so make sure to purchase the right language. The Otium has a boat neck and both a high and low back option. The low back has an optional bow. There are several sleeve options and an option for a cool triangle front pocket. This pattern is packed with variations!
I made both of ours with 3/4 sleeves and the bow back option. Those bows are just too adorable to pass up. The sweaters sew up super quick. I completed both of them on my serger in about an hour and a half from cut to finish.
My daughter is a bit Flamingo obsessed. She calls them “Mingos”. They are her favorite animal because Hello! Pink! I found this really cool Stenzo Flamingo print at Loiseau Fabrics.
This was my first mommy and me shoot. I underestimated the challenges that it would bring up. Height differences.. Daughter that looses her ability to stand.. She is used to me being behind the camera. I think I was a big distraction 😛
Despite all that we had a great time. It all ended with us making grass angels and rolling around on the ground. She is thrilled to have a flamingo shirt and when she has long grown out of hers I will have mine to remind me of her “Mingos”
