hot pink!

For this cardigan, I got the inspiration from the Karen Cardigan that BurdaStyle posted last week. Since I don't have a patience to print out pattern, put them together and all that, I just made it myself something similar. I think mine is a bit less flowing, less ruffly because Andy hates ruffle. I do like a little bit or ruffle, but I tend to avoid overly sweet ruffly stuff. I also added two buttons, one outside and one inside of the cardigan and button loops so it can be worn button up as well. As I was taking pictures for the cardigan outside of my house, I found those lovely flowers which happened to be the same color as my new creation:)
The bodice is only one fabric. This time, I connected the front panels and back panel together, instead of making side seems. I wanted to create somewhat flowey less formal look. I am thinking of making this in maybe linen or something for a jacket next time.
Wearing: handmade cardi, harem pants from thailand, unknown black pumps, and thrifted gold chain and pearl necklace.
