Sweater to Cardigan: Round 2*

*Also known today as What I Wore Sunday.  Linking up with Fine Linen and Purple for their weekly fun.

Saturday I wrote about one sweater turned cardi and today it’s on to number two:

Here’s how it clothed me for Mass yesterday:

[Where’s Waldo Cecilia?]

This one was a little easier to convert since it was already my fave cut – a v-neck.  All I had to do was cut down the middle,
 pattcardi 001

sew a zig-zag stitch for extra fraying protection,
 pattcardi 002

fold each edge over twice and pin,

and sew a straight stitch along the inside edge.pattcardi 004

It took me all of 10 minutes to get a jazzy new cardigan that’s now bumped up to favorite.  Anyone else into clothing conversions?  My fave is Grace’s skirt from skorts.  Talent, pure talent.

I won’t sign off before giving a glimpse of the twins' garb.  Mommy invoked their true southern sides with a little crab action, courtesy of Grandma and Grandpa.photo (2)

Have a great week!

P.S.  I’m still waiting to hear all about your kids and their big personalities!  Link ‘em up!  I’m giving full permission for bragging…and venting.  I know Lauren and I aren’t the only over-worked proud moms (& dads) out there!  :)


  1. Both cardi's turned out SO cute! You make me want to cut up all of my sweaters! Haha.
    That bottom pic is the best!

  2. I have those crab outfits for my girls too! I loved them so much that I had to buy two of them. I can't wait until they are big enough to fit in them.

    1. Awesome! They are so cute! They're actually a teensy-weensy big on my girls still but I couldn't resist! :)

  3. Oh, I love this refashion!! I love your little blog and the twins are just too cute!! I'm your newest follower via bloglovin'!

  4. You are too cute! And we have that crab onesie, too (only one of them, a hand-me-down), and that same color bumbo, and that same jumperoo... Basically our babies are living the same lives :P

  5. Saw this on instagram and noticed a super cute looking graphic black and white sweater...SO smart!! I'm heading to the clearance rack and thrift store with v-necks in mind!
