True, Cha Cha wasn’t in the Pink Ladies, and she was actually the arch nemesis with the bad reputation. But for all of us “Grease” fans, she still had an amazing look and was a fashion icon in her own right. This little cardigan is inspired by Cha Cha: some eyelets on the hugely puffed short sleeves, cropped, v-neck, and crochet detailing. Plus, don’t we all kind of wish the ladies were all friends?

Cha Cha is the fifth release in my “Pink Ladies Collection”!
