Cardigan Upcycle

I was rummaging through some old clothes for fabric to upcycle and came across this grey J Crew cardigan that I got as a gift during my college years, so a very long time ago 😀  It was old, but still in good shape. The fabric is wool with a fleece lining. I figured I could upcycle it into a cardigan I would wear again.


To start, I cut off the collar, buttons and shortened the sleeves (they were too long). 


And replaced them with a tartan bias tape trim.


I added frog clasps down the front, so that I could close it. Simple 🙂
