So here it is, my glammed up cardigan!
|Not my best picture but hey! It's the cardi that matters|
This was actually a black cardigan from Zara, bought years ago and never really loved (= always at the back of the wardrobe). There was just something I didn't like about it... It was just too plain, too boring... So was perfect to experiment with.
First I sewed all the buttonholes and removed the buttons. I tend to only button the middle or top button on my cardigans so opted for the first option. Then I had to choose a button...
I got these a while ago. I absolutely adore these buttons, they are so quirky!I thought it would be perfect to add a bit of oomph, and black and white is safe enough to be coordinated with other colours. It looked nice, but was still a little bit too plain.
It was when I pulled out my winter clothes from my wardrobe that I realised I had the perfect accessory to add. Last spring in the sales at Tesco's were fake-fur collars in different colours. At £2.50 instead of £10 I picked a black one and dark burgundy one. Then of course, it was time to pack my winter clothes so I forgot all about them. I like this sort of surprises.
I went for the dark burgundy collar over the black one, as I really wanted something to stand out. I think it works really well, even more when I noticed I had several pairs of tights the same colour. I am slightly obsessed with coordinating the clothes I'm wearing.
It didn't take me long (a couple of hours maximum) and I'm glad with the result. I'll definitely be wearing it now!
Until next time,
