Grown-up Starry

When I published Starry pattern, a beaded sweater for little girls in autumn 2016, I was asked if there would be an adult version. Designing it took me months and months, but here is Grown-up Starry for us grown-ups girls, with waist shaping, scooped neck and fitted sleeves – a chic, feminine and flattering sweater in short!
