Made my own Anthro Beribboned Buds Cardigan

Sometimes I think Anthropologie is just begging to be copied.  See this darling sweater:

I've had a plain silk/cotton blend sweater sitting on my mending pile waiting for a makeover for a while, and when I saw this cute flowered cardi (and I knew I had some simple trims sitting around), I put the two together.

They have quite a few cute embellished cardigans, like this one and this one:

So I thought about a lot of arrangements and trim types, but I ended up with the original, the Beribboned Buds Cardigan, with fewer flowers:

The best part is, I did it on the machine!!!


  1. I like it. I agree with you sometimes you just have to borrow their ideas!

  2. Oooo, I like it. You are inspiring me to try this myself.

  3. This looks great! I'm so glad to find your blog- so much inspiration. What a beautiful blog you have!
