Sweater Two; Pink Cashmere

Hello Readers. I am trying to get some sweaters ready for wearing in this cold weather. I don't do well in the cold, I need warm fuzzy layers.

This blush pink cashmere sweater set is just the kind of fuzzy layer I like. (I might have a cashmere obsession.) I found this at a clothes swap and it was soft, pretty and in perfect condition. It was neutral and would match everything. It was a great sweater.

The best part of all? It was actually 2 sweaters! My daughter had never seen a twin set and was surprised that there were actually 2 matching sweaters. They had a really authentic vintage vibe. For now I decided to focus on the cardigan. I will get to pullover next month.

I also had another pink sweater in the exact same shade of blush pink. I have been saving this big pink sweater because I liked this lace in the back. This open back in this big thick sweater made it almost useless. It is COLD! I need sweaters with full complete backs. This open lace would never keep me warm. But I had a plan!

I picked out a few stitches and the lace came out all in one piece. Now comes the swap!

I used my machine to stitch the applique to the pink cashmere sweater. I also did some hand sewing in a few places.

The sweater is soft, warm and now it is a little more interesting and fun.

I love how the lace adds some detail and texture to the back of this cardigan. 

Thanks for reading along, now go make something fun for yourself.

How lucky that the lace matched the "new" sweater! Very pretty!

Hi, thanks for the comment. I was so happy when I saw the lace was the same color. It was a refashion miracle.
Happy sewing!

Thanks Jenny,
I was happy with the sweater and then I realized it was sweaters. And then I saw the lace matched. It was a happy sewing day.
