As the temps finally start to wain, I find myself reaching for my stash of cardigans. But, to be honest, I fallen out of love with most of them. They’ve started to lose their shape and coloring and are just sort of blah. So, I took to Pinterest for some inspiration and thought I’d share my favorite tutorials for refashioning a cardigan.
1. Ruffle Trim
Let’s kick this whole thing off with a ruffle. The talented and lovely Jessica from Joyfolieblog.com came up with this little creation. She takes it a step further and adds rhinestones to the buttons, too, which is equally adorable.
2. Add Ricrac
This bright little number is just a bunch ricrac strategically sewn in all the right places. It’s the creation of GrosgrainFabulous.com and inspired by the Emma Pillsberry character from Glee.
3. Add pleats and a bow
What’s more adorable that pleats and bows? Nothing? This is why I’m so in love with this RufflesandStuff.com cardigan refashion. I love that she used a thrift store tank as fabric for the embellishment!
5. Add pockets
Finally, you can easily add pockets (lace or otherwise) to your cardi. BlissfulandDomestic.com came up with this darling option.
