I have had this cardigan in my "inspiration file" for a couple of months now. I love the romantic feel of the ruffled lace on the shoulders. Needless to say, anthropologie cardigans are not in my budget!! :) But I thought this would be fairly easy to replicate.
So I headed to our local consignment shop, Ditto. If you live in the KC area and you have not checked this store out... do. (But not if you wear my size. ;))
Then, while I was at Hancock fabric getting supplies for another project (which I hope to show you very soon) I stumbled upon this lace trim in the bargain bin. It cost me all of $0.83. Love that!!
I hand stitched three rows to each shoulder. I didn't measure or anything. I just "eyeballed it" as Rachel Ray would say. Because, you know, making a pot of soup and sewing lace on to a cardi, really are so similar!!
I love the pockets on it that will most likely be sporting super sexy accessories like those you see below. Why yes, that is black spiderman and the green goblin!!
Overall, I am really pleased with how it turned out. My lace doesn't come down as far as the original, but I think my way suits my body shape better. Let me know what you think!!
