Yesterday I was browsing some thrifting videos on youtube and came across this great video for sewing up those drapey cardigans that were all the rage this past winter. I really wanted one and never bought one because they were expensive and I did not have the money to spend. I just so happened to have some stretchy jersey laying around that was going to be a skirt, but I wanted this cardigan more. :) This gal gave me the inspiration to sew one up! The music is loud, so you might have to turn your volume down. Just a friendly warning! :)
So I did exactly what this gal did in her tutorial for the sleeveless one, and then I added my own sleeves. I just measured around my arms and used that measurement to draft the sleeves. It was so so easy! Now I have a great go to cardigan for wearing with most anything. I have tried it with a dress and 3 different s kirts shown below and love it! I don't think its frumpy at all with skirts or dresses. Just pairing it with the right thing makes all the difference. If you have some knit fabric you don't know what to do with as I did not have any clue what to do with, try this tutorial! Maybe even add some fun rosettes to the neckline or go with a bold color. Its fun to wear! :)
The headband from garlands of grace is amazing!! It goes with so many of my things I already have in my closet and it was a smart purchase I believe with some of my birthday money. :) The rest is being saved though. :) You can see their etsy shop here-http://www.etsy.com/shop/GarlandsOfGrace?ref=pr_shop_more
I was inspired by them and also made one headband so far myself. I plan to sew up some more sometime soon! Will be sharing the latest quilt I am almost done with soon!
