I bought this cardigan in a charity shop because you can never have enough cardies methinks, and I liked how it is asymmetric. Unfortunately it was one of those purchases that I didn’t wear because the colour doesn’t suit me at all! Decided to jazz it up with a tie and add some colour, making the most of the asymmetry of the garment. I was inspired by a necktie piece on another website (see link for a very good tutorial).
To make your own project:
Unpick tie carefully until you only have the fabric left
Fold lengthwise and sew, leaving a gap to turn
Press turned tie
Ruffle tie as desired
sew on by hand
I think the whole project took about 1.5-2 hours.
1 boring cardigan
1 silk tie
needle and thread
Pattern of the Week
You’ll want to wear this dress to tiki parties, spring weddings, and afternoon dates...
