Beaded Cardigan

Beaded Cardigan


This is actually the picture I took for day four of SSS but I never ended up posting it. I got the cardigan at an op-shop about a month ago. The photo isn't very good but the cardigan's amazing. It's made of wool and the bodice is lined which is something I've never come across before. I think it may be from the 60s. The beading continues around the back of the neck as well. I'm a bit scared to wear it too much just in case any of the beads come off.
I've been trying to get back to posting regularly but after the earthquake my laptop cord decided to stop working and I've only just got a new one.
I have a couple of pairs of sailor style pants that I'm almost finished sewing so I will try and get some pictures of them this week.

  1. Oh Sailor pants, look forward to seeing those! I decided this weekend to make a nautically inspired pair of shorts at some stage soon.

    I have also lost track a bit with SSS, it all just a bit "ugh" with everything else going on and I have shamefully fallen off the wagon. I have however being sewing still, so I supposed that a small redemption.....right?

  6. Emma- Yes, I made the sailor pants. I'm actually making another red pair at the moment.
    I am indeed very short.
