DIY Monday

Today’s post is dedicated to the wonderful Ll, who is my Chicago shopping Guru!

I mentioned casually to Ll that it is really freaking freezing where I work, so she went into her closet and brought me a whole passel of her cardigans for me to choose from.  Isn’t that really sweet?  Passel, by the way, is a technical term.  But I choose a black one and a soft off-white cardigan, thanked her profusely, and was much less cold at work. 

Fast forward a month or so and I found this beautiful cobalt blue silk fabric swatch (on sale!) at the fabric store that I just knew I could do something awesome with.  So I decided to “dress up” my wonderful black cardigan, and give it a fabric embellishment.  It was really simple, I just cut a rectangle into the silk, folded the ends under, and hand-basted it onto the front of the cardigan.  Which gave me this!

It's a shame I'm such a bad photographer, because this looks amazing in real life~

So I’m wearing it today, in honor of Ll, who doesn’t have a blog, but if she did it would be about how to be awesome.  AT LIFE!


Warning: awesomeness not shown at actual size.
