...random thoughts from our lives...

new lease on life?



When putting away summer clothes and pulling out sweaters this week I found an oldish cardigan and shell set that I've had for a very long time. I guess I'm sentimental about it since I still have it but rarely wear it. My Mom bought it for me during a visit to Moscow when L & C were babies. While internet window shopping (because that's the only kind I do these days :) I saw the pink cardigan at DownEast. Every time I see all those embellished tees and sweaters I think that would be so easy to do and much cheaper. I cut up the shell and sewed the pleated strips onto the cardigan. So....be honest.....would you wear this in public?? It turned out a little more "ruffly" than I wanted. When I showed Cody he voted two thumbs down- too puffy in front. What do you think?

Oh my heck, yes!!! I'd wear it in a heartbeat. It's WAY cute. You did such a nice job with the ruffles, I totally thought it was the same as the one above.

You look way better than the model- love the sweater... defiantly wear it. I just bought one that's similar, you're so talented!
