Black Chanel Style Cardigan Make Over

Dear Old Boring Black Cardigan With The Weird Sleeves That Make My Arms Look Dumb,

Please stop being so old and boring so I have more reason to wear you out.


Apparently writing letters to your clothing doesn’t actually work. Who knew?

So this is how I fixed that problem instead and turned Old Boring Black Cardigan into something which is a little more my style and a tiny bit Chanel inspired.

    Wow what a fantastic makeover!! Do you think it would with ribbon instead of elastic? :D

      It definitely would but you would need to be more careful about the fit, the elastic allows the cardigan to stretch over you while ribbon isn’t as forgiving!
