I first laid eyes on Anthro’s Whirl & Wind Cardigan in last September’s catalog. I thought it was super fun and loved the color but the price just wasn’t working with my wallet at the time~ and let’s face it. Nothings changed…
I haven’t forgotten about that cardigan a year later and it’s now discontinued. boo
Fast forward a year later and I found this mustard colored cardigan set during the Yard Crawl
It was 2 sizes too big which was perfect for what I had planned. The sleeveless shell even had a few holes but that wasn’t a big deal since I would be cutting around it anyway.
I used another sweater I had refashioned as my guide for taking in my mustard sweater. I laid it on top and pinned around it; then sewed.
I then cut my shell into 1 1/2″ strips
Pinned and sew in place
I think it is my new favorite sweater. I want to wear it with everything! I keep putting together all kinds of different outfits so that I can wear this sweater more! I think I might even sleep in it tonight. Just kidding. Maybe.
Have a great day!
