This Sweater was featured in the Winter 2017 issue of Altered Couture magazine!

I was inspired by the flowers in Alice in Wonderland - so bright & lively!  I found this simple perry winkle blue cardigan at my local thrift store - I just love the classic cut, but knew I had to "enhance" it a bit... I added several different style flowers around the front neckline using different cotton calico prints.  Instead of using the traditional satin stitch around the edge of the appliqués, I just gave it a simple single stitch - leaving the edges to fray a bit, giving it a little more character.  Upcycled & one-of-kind.
