I spied this darling cover-up on a popular blog post but I did not want to spend the money for the tutorial. A quick Youtube search and I found Rin’s Sew In Love tutorial for free. This was her first tutorial and she is adorable and has a very soothing voice. I followed her instructions to the letter. She must be petite because when I finished the cardigan I put it on but could not raise my arms. I wore it anyway because it was cute and I had a few errands to run. Funny thing though…I had to take it off to parallel park because my arms where constrained but I still thought it was cute. I’m going to send it to my petite cousin.
I really wanted to wear this look so I tried it again and increased the fabric by 1/2 yard. I also gathered the fabric along the front band to create a bit of playfulness.
The outcome was perfection. I love the way the fabric drapes…it reminds me of fashion in the 80’s. I paired the cardigan with my superwoman t-shirt, Lucky brand jeans you can find the details in the “It’s a Wrap” post and a pair of red pumps….don’t remember where I got them….sorry.
This is a very easy project. Give it a go – you won’t be disappointed. Thanks for stopping by. If you have any questions please use the “contact me” link at the top of the blog.
See you soon….
