With Easter fast approaching we know everyone is busy and looking for something lovely to wear to catch up with family and friends over the long weekend. So Sarah and I thought it would be fun to show you how to cute up your favourite cardigan with a sweet collar in two easy steps, using a couple of doilies. Here's how we did it..
What You'll Need: A cardigan with a round neckline (Sarah thrifted this one), two small doily that will fit on either side of the neckline, scissors and a needle and thread. Optional: You can add some ribbon or lace on the cuffs or down the front for an extra bit of flair.
Step One: Line up the doilies so that that the patterns match on each side of the cardigan, pin if necessary and then hand sew in place, working your way across the top of the doily.
Step 2. Once you have sewn down the front, turn the doily over and add a few small stitches on the back to hold the doily down. Press into place if necessary and you are done!
Ta Da! Now you have a super cute collar on your favourite cardigan. Try using doilies of different thicknesses and sizes or even dye them to match your cardigan. Just add a cute dress, necklace and some sweet ballet flats for a lovely Easter outfit.
