Bear, Delaware, ...
I bought this lacy cardigan from the thrift store, then found another one on a clearance rack that better suited my winter warmth needs. So I thought this one would be a good way to play around with sewing on sweater knits! I shortened the hem and sleeves (using the original zig-zag hemlines), took it in quite a bit, added the band to function as a belt, and added some buttons.
See the last picture for the original sweater.
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
