I keep reminding myself every time I wear it that I need to get more patterned cardigans!
The sparkly buttons really drew me in in the first place.
I don’t really own a lot of items like this, but I love it!
I’ve had this sweater in my closet for about a year & a half now.
It’s the only patterned sweater I have (surprisingly).
Learn how it was done at Grosgain Adding pleats and a bow tot he neckline is easier than you think.
See how the accents were added at Ruffles and Stuff Remove a front ruffle and add it the waist.

If you are living frugally, chances are you aren't spending a lot on your wardrobe.I want the cardi to be either 4 inches longer or 4 inches shorter. They’re just about 2 inches shy of being a full sleeve, but they’re too long to be considered a 3/4.The cardi tends to stretch a little bit during the day, so pushing up the sleeves is something I’m constantly doing through out the day. This morning while getting ready to go out to lunch with my parents & sisters, I tried on a bunch of cardigans with this tank, but I wasn’t really liking anything.with the cardi right side out, I folded the sleeve up until the end of the cuff & the fold read 3 inches. I’ve seen some tutorials online use this same technique for hemming denim.I pinned my fold in place & sewed along the hemmed line. It’s a pretty quick way to shorten something & keep it looking professional. These proportions look so much better in my opinion. For outfit details & info, check out the fashion blog.From there, I folded the cuff back over & ironed the seam down – use the highest setting your garment will allow. I think I’ll be getting a lot more use out of this cardigan now.
