No matter the weather, it is downright icy in my office. So I always have a sweater handy. This simple black cardigan wasn’t around all that long (compared to some of the other items in my closet) before the cuffs totally shredded. But when I noticed a little hole, that was the final straw and home it comes to the chop shop.
I had some grand plans. Ruffle sleeves. Leather shoulder patches. But when I took a closer look, I got an unfortunate surprise. A secret second hole!
This one is the middle of the front panel, so now I have to think of a good solution. I’m taking suggestions!
In my last post, I mentioned I scored a lacy dress which I planned to pick apart. Well…the initial plan didn’t work. There isn’t enough fabric to cut out the top of the dress I’m working on (and I use that term “working on” loosely…I’m really “working on” dropping off the new fabric at the laundry so I can move along). But, Burda, in all their genius, thought they’d spice up one of their recent patterns with a little lace:
And as luck would have it, I recently made that top. And as luck would have THAT, the fabric matches the lace I just picked apart!
Much better I’d say! Can’t wait to wear it. Tomorrow is my “Friday” at my day job (better known as Wednesday to the rest of you). Could be a great dress-down day!
