So, when I first saw the commercial for Old Navy's new Fair Isle sweater collection, they had the most amazing little babydoll sweater that I had to have. So I figured I could just knit one, but I was wondering if I could get some more eyes to look at it and tell me if it looks like some sort of cotton knit jersey that is sewn on at the bottom:

Or maybe you have actually seen one in the stores. I can't figure out if it's a very finely knit tunic or some sort of cotton knit fabric. I've got tank top covered. Any help is very much appreciated.  Smiley

Link doesn't work.

OH MY GOSH, I loved that sweater when I saw it, too.  I need to have that!  If I could make it that would be so cool!

Definitely looks like a fine knit jersey for the bottom half to me.

I thought it was a fine knit, but even if it is I think it would be adorable with cotton jersey for the bottom!

I've seen this in the store and it's not jersey but it is a super fine gauge, definitely different from the fair isle part of the vest.  I believe that it's sewn on separately, if that helps.  Good luck!
