Makeover time! Couldn’t resist this frumpy cardi from the charity shop this morning. Although the style is dated, it’s pure wool and in really good condition. Hmmm, which way are the refashion cogs turning…. maybe a seasonal twist? Christmas sweaters are on trend at the moment, so let’s follow that theme.
The grey polkadot fabric of these star shaped elbow patches are reminiscent of snowflakes.
Finish off by replacing the naff gold buttons with these gorgeous fabric covered ones.
Voila…we’re ready for Christmas Day!
This was a quick refashion, taking not much more than an hour using Vintage-Patch iron on star shaped elbow patches and appliques – and some fabric covered buttons. The darts weren’t really necessary, but help shaping of the garment.
