Ruffled Cardigan

This sewing project from Tonia at The Gunny Sack shows that we shouldn’t be too quick to write off a piece of rarely worn clothing. Take this button-down cardigan that Tonia’s daughter never wore.

Tonia knew the cardigan needed a little something something to bring it back to life… a little something something like RUFFLES! Tonia simply removed the buttons and sewed on a few rows of ruffles from some cream fabric she already had on hand. So next time you are about to toss a piece of clothing to the Goodwill pile consider how you could easily revamp it. A simple ruffle, pleat, or button could make all the difference!
