Click here to see the sweater that caught my eye.
And, here's what I made while digging through my closet...
This used to be a cardigan. I cut off the bottom and added it around the neck to make the sweater come higher. Then, I sewed it shut so I have to put the sweater on over my head. I kept the belt, added a ruffle like hem, a mother of pearl button, and went to Goodwill to find a $2 white sweater to use for the petals. I had the green fabric to make the leaves thanks to a hat making time with my wonderful friend Melissa. I know this sounds prideful, but I can't wait to wear it!
Then, I decided I would see what was on Anthro's website and came across some scarves, loops, and so many delicious things!
Here's what I made after looking at their accessories...
This little green scarf took less than 30 minutes!
(I'm in love with this burnt orange color.)
I used a silver skirt I bought at Old Navy for $1 and found this beautiful crochet sweater at Goodwill for $3.25. I had the seam binding from my stash...so much fun...so inexpensive!
So, today, I'm loving the sunshine and the almost 80 degree weather, but realizing that it's way to hot to wear any today and am secretly hoping it gets cold just to wear my new things!
