I think I might be the last blogger in blogland to get around to making a cardigan from a shirt - but hey, I finally did it. So you get to hear about it :)
First up, I have had a pink stripe cardigan on my mind since I saw this post from Elle Apparel (follow the link for her tutorial) almost a year ago - she sewed hers and it turned out great - here it is:
But is it me, I can never find fun knit fabric - like stripes. So the project never ended up happening.
But one day when I was wearing this pink striped shirt I have, I was thinking about how I didn't love it - mainly because it was pretty snug. I thought - finally, I have something to "refashion"! So here we go - the before picture:
Anyways, I really really like it! I couldn't decide if it looked better with a necklace or a scarf, and thought I loved both - they're both just different looks - so I included both to give you an idea of how to wear it.
So seriously, you can SO do this! just grab a shirt and some scissors. If you don't have a shirt you want to cut up, start hunting the thrift stores.....
