DIY ribbon cardigan
I went to JCrew for the special prices on Black Friday and found a plain black cardigan for $20. I love their Jackie cardigans and own a few, but they are way pricey, especially the more frill they have. I generally buy them at the outlet, but they are never that cheap & usually they only carry the plain ones.
I bought the black one and about 2 yards of grosgrain ribbon and embelished mine to resemble the grosgrain ribbon cardigan they have for sale right now for $90 (the tan one above). I am really happy with it. Just a bunch of folds and knots pinned in place, and a few stitches later, voila!
I promise it looks much cuter on than in the pictures.
What kind of deals did y'all get?
Sorry about my photos - that's not an area that I can brag about.
