Refashion: DIY Lacy Cardigan

Hello readers! I hope you all had a very lovely Christmas! :) This is one of my favorite holidays and this year was just perfect since I am now engaged to my best friend, Autry. We've been dating for 1 year and 4 months. And last year we had to celebrate with hundreds of miles separating us so this year was nice to be able to be together on Christmas Eve & Christmas Day.

Enough about Christmas, on to refashioning! :) I am really excited to have finally reached this refashion in the posting line! When I was added as a contributor I decided I would start by sharing my oldest refashion posts first and work my way up to the current refashions. I still haven't reached the current ones, so if you've enjoyed what I've shared so far you may be even more interested in these here since, in my opinion, the work has become a lot better and the refashions turn out really well!

This Weeks Refashion: I took one of my cardigans (I say one of because I have many!) and added some lace from a thrifted curtain to the edges to 'dress it up' and 'add some life' and 'make it cute'. All of which I think I succeeded at! :) What do you think?

This was a fairly long and drawn out process for me. I will say that if I come across another cardigan that just needs a little more something I will totally be adding lace since I wear this cardigan a whole lot more now than I ever did when it was just plain and purple.

Because this was a learning experience for me I had the camera tagging along taking photos of the process so there is a really good, detailed post here @ Blue Eyed Beauty Blog which you can look through and follow to create your own or even find inspiration from!

BEFORE

This is what my cardigan looked like before I refashioned it. It was a lovely purple Merona cardigan which was thrifted! Thrift stores are THE BEST place to find clothes for refashions...but I'm sure you all already knew that. ;)

Until next time,
