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.
