Lined Cardigan from Fleece Pullover


First I wanted to THANK all of you for your wonderfully caring and supportive words concerning Little Man's arm. He is doing GREAT. He is still adjusting to being able to use his arm. I truly appreciated all of your comments, well wishes, and sympathy. Thanks for helping this Momma cope.

On to my Refashion-


This is the second of five refashioned and embellished projects that I will be doing over the next couple of months. I am part of this little sewing project that started with the Ruffled Tee. Project reminder, five different bloggers are all give the same piece of clothing to refashion and embellish.

This months project started out as this-


The old familiar Old Navy fleece pullover. Not my original...silly me forgot to take a before. I ALWAYS do that!

This project was HARD for me. I do not normally care for fleece. I almost always think immediately baby or toddler when I feel it's soft coziness. Since I kept switching to baby mode, it made it super hard for me to think of what to do.

I came up with a cropped cardigan-type thingy. It is a weird mix between a cardigan and a coat. I altered the sleeves to 3/4. I cut up the middle to open it like a cardigan. I added some ruffles, added a belt, and I added a lining. 

Shhhh...truth be told I am not sure I really accomplished my vision. I am also not sure I LOVE it.

However, it is still pretty amazing what you can do with a simple fleece cardigan.





My favorite part is definitely the lining.

Go and see what the other girls were able to do with their fleece.

Nice!!! LOVE the lining! And I like how you shortened the sleeves - gives it a totally different look.

I also like the lining- it brings so much color and joy :). And here I am again thinking I would like to redo the pullover all over again so I can use all your ideas :)
