I am now posting on All For This Penny. Please visit me there!
I love all the cute and feminine cardigans I’ve been seeing lately (here for example). They are just adorable and made my plain cardigans look boring. So I had to refashion a few of them. This first one I just added some organdy ribbon around the collar.
Basically I just randomly pleated the ribbon in any which way and sewed down. Simple but sweet. I also tried changing the buttons on this cardigan to white vintage buttons (thinking vintage buttons make anything cuter… ) and it just made it look a little dated for my taste. But those vintage buttons are still to die for.
This cardigan is my favorite (my husband really, really likes this one, too. I’m actually surprised at how much he likes it). I just sewed on some rows of lace (with a zigzag stitch). I love it!
Look at how cute this lace is. It makes me really happy.
I thought I’d show you this next picture because it makes me laugh. While I was sewing on the lace I somehow sewed down my presser-foot. I guess I wasn’t paying enough attention to what I was doing. It sure made me laugh.
