Abby Cardi - Tie Waist Sweater Item 6 - Planning

The next item I'm making for the Wardrobe Basics Sew Along is the Tie Waist Sweater. When I ordered my Kate Top pattern from Style Arc, the bonus pattern was the Abby Cardi:

I think I will make the 3/4 sleeve version as I live in a fairly warm climate and think I will get more wear out of this style (but I might still change my mind).  I'm going to use this fabric purchased from Fabric.com:

I have purposely chosen this pattern as it calls for a rolled hem on the hem of the cardi and I really want to get better at this skill on my overlocker/coverstich machine. I've also had good success with the fit of Style Arc patterns so far, so fingers crossed this one works as well too.
